WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - The Alive Ministry Thrift Store, located in the former Ninth Street laundromat, was finally able to open it’s door to those in need.
“More or less it’s for the kids so they’ll have a safe place to come and a safe place to live and that’s what it’s all about,” said Rex Hendrix, Overseer of The Alive Ministry Thrift Store.
Not only will the thrift store be providing clothes, shoes and furniture to families in need, they’ve also partnered with Wichita Falls nonprofit organization CASA to help children going through foster care.
“They will be gracious enough to provide whatever we may need for them. Sometimes our children come with literally nothing in foster care. It may be clothes, it may be hygiene products, things like that just to help the children,” said James Bolding, Executive Director Child Advocate.
The Alive Thrift Store also plans to provide a street ministry every week for those who may need spiritual support.
“If they have anything they’d like to say, come on up, they can tell something about them and their testimony. We can learn something about them and help them where they’re at,” said Hendrix.
