Volunteer Steffanie Beasley goes over inventory in the men's and young boy's section, where the shelves for jeans are a little bare, at the Bingham Crisis Center Thrift Store. The store is always accepting good quality donated merchandise but is particularly in need of clothing for men and young boys at this time.
Back-to-school shoppers have hit the Bingham Crisis Center Thrift Store pretty hard recently and the store could use some donations. The thrift store is a subsidiary of the Bingham Crisis Center run solely by volunteers with proceeds from the store going to help the crisis center, a shelter for adults and children.
"We always need clean, gently used clothing," said Steffanie Beasley, thrift store volunteer. "We especially need clothing for men and young boys right now."
Beasley said the store is a "bargain hunter's paradise" and is becoming well-known in the area for their "better than yard-sale prices."
"We get some really nice things in here," she added. "And where else can you find work shirts for twenty-five cents or a pair of shoes for a dollar?"
All household items (kitchen supplies, bedding, knick-knacks, wall decor, etc.) and clothing in good condition are welcome.
Beasley emphasized that the thrift store cannot accept mattresses, used pillows, used underwear, cribs or car seats.
The store accepts donations Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 6 p.m. at 34 Louella Street in Blackfoot. For more information call 208-681-8716.
