Purpose of the Store
The store benefits the community in several ways.
- First, profits directly fund the works of the GBF Community Services Client Services and Food Bank.
- Second, the store provides low cost (and in many cases, free) clothing, furniture, and household products to those in need.
- Third, the store creates an opportunity for people to participate in charitable works through their donations or volunteer services.
Here at the store all our efforts and assets are designated for the assistance of those less fortunate in the community.
