For the past decade The Blessings Shop has been serving the needs of the local community in Aransas Pass by providing good, gently used clothing, dishes, household goods, tools and other items at rock-bottom prices. This 501(c)3 organization also provides a tax-deductible drop-off location for local people to bring in their donations of clothes and other goods. And 100% of the proceeds go back to the participating churches, providing much of the benevolence funding that takes place in our community.
The Blessings Shop is an all-volunteer charity operated through the hard work of 5 local churches and other volunteers. Proverbs 31:20 says She opens her hand to the poor, and reaches out her hands to the needy.
Do you have a heart for service? Then we could use your help! We are called to show our gratitude for the many blessings in our lives through sharing our time, talents and resources. We are always seeking volunteers willing to share the love of Christ in our community, will you help?
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our ministry through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
Hurricane Harvey damaged the roof of the original downtown location, and the store was forced to move to a new location about a third the size, resulting in a substantial decline in revenue.
Through a generous donation, our old damaged building was donated to the charity, a $220,000 value, and we have raised to date over $75,000 in donations and SBA loan funds, and have restored the shop back to its historic home in downtown Aransas Pass, with a grand opening coming on August 1, 2018.
We are still seeking about $20,000 to complete the restoration to this 8,600 square foot historical commercial building, and are getting every closer to permanently endowing this important ministry.
