Along with words from Guiding Light Mission and Holland Rescue Mission, attendees will be able to tour the store, enjoy appetizers, refreshments, and giveaways.

Guiding Light Mission, in partnership with Holland Rescue Mission, created the Guiding Light Mission Upscale Thrift Store, a 7,500 square foot space. The store will hold a variety of items for sale that cater to all ages, including dishes, hardware, sporting goods and jewelry. As well, it will have new furniture and mattresses, accompanied with free delivery.

Executive Director at Guiding Light Mission, Stuart Ray, is looking forward to this collaboration and growth, stating “we are very excited for this opportunity, not only for our organization, but for those involved and impacted as well. The Guiding Light Mission Upscale Thrift Store will provide an outlet for those donors with scarce financial resources to make contributions that eventually will support the financial needs of the ministry.”

Existing to provide funding for Guiding Light Mission, the thrift store will also provide new volunteer opportunities to those interested. This low-cost opportunity is part of Guiding Light Mission’s efforts to broaden its scope of services and awareness outside of the Heartside neighborhood.
