Here's just one of many reasons !
Acme Christian Thrift Store & Food Pantry (ACTS) rocks ( ! ) because of the innovative way it is set up. By combining a fully functioning thrift store with a charitable food pantry, we can create resale revenue, then use it to pay all store/pantry expenses (including payroll) and purchase about 30% of the food required to give people in need in our community,.The rest of the food is purchased using money from foundation grants, corporate gifts and individual cash donations.
Why is this important ?
Because all expenses are paid by thrift store revenue, 100% of your cash donation purchases food for our pantry.
This distinction sets us apart from many other seemingly similar organizations.
