God’s Goods Thrift Store opened for business on July 31, 2010. At that time, approximately 60 volunteers, mainly from Sun City, staffed the all-volunteer store.
Over the past 11 years, the volunteer base has grown to just more than 300 people, with more than 500 volunteers serving since God’s Goods began. The store remains entirely staffed by volunteers, managed by an all-volunteer leadership team.
God’s Goods began after a mission trip to Belize in 2009 by members of The Church of the Cross. Inspired by the need to share our over-abundance of blessings, God’s Goods was born and, in the eleven years since, has generated more than 3 million dollars to the mission field. 100% of God’s Goods Thrift Store proceeds benefit mission work locally, nationally, and internationally.
In addition to the money raised and given (solely to the mission field), God’s Goods has also given hundreds of thousands of dollars in goods to the many needs in our community, around the nation, and around the globe. God has orchestrated just the right means to get merchandise to just the right places.
Some of the bigger outreach efforts have been to Puerto Rico (following hurricane damage), where over 100 bins of clothing and other needs went on a cargo ship to Puerto Rico where they were distributed by a church. Another amazing outreach occurred after a local community member heard of an orphanage demolished by a storm in West Virginia; God’s Goods sent its entire inventory of children’s clothing and some other items needed to help there. Most recently, when Hampton County was devastated by tornados last year, God’s Goods volunteers launched a drive to supply paper products and other needed items and also donated six truck and trailer loads of furniture for individual families in need.
Outreach efforts continue on a weekly basis with “God’s Gifts” which is held in conjunction with The Church of the Cross Food Bank distribution every Monday. “God’s Gifts” include clothing, linens, household items, toys, and miscellaneous items that are gifted to those in need.
