Tucked away in a tiny corner of St. Matthews is a little thrift store with a very big heart. Calhoun County Cares Thrift Store is dedicated to serving the needs of the folks in our county.
By taking the gently used items and monetary donations of their kind benefactors (that's some of YOU) they are able to help our neighbors and friends when they need it most.
Just a few examples of what Calhoun County Cares Thrift Store does for us:
Gives $3,000/month to DSS for heating costs for those who can't pay that month.
Gives $2,000/school year to our two K-8 schools for school supplies
Helps 20+ foster children celebrate Christmas each year
Maintains The Fire Room to replace household items lost in county resident's house fires
Funds materials needed to repair homes for needy families in partnership with Salkehatchie Summer Service which provides the labor
Works with Sons of Allen to send up to 30 African American youth to summer day camp each year
Consideration is given to each special requests submitted in writing
Sponsors the Annual Thanksgiving Dinner open to ALL Calhoun County Residents who wish to attend
These aren't all the ways Calhoun County Cares Thrift Store meets needs in our county. They do so much more as "just a little thrift store." A thrift store YOU invest in with your every donation of gently used items. A thrift store YOU support with your every purchase. Because......
Calhoun County Cares!
