Thrift Boutique Open:
Monday through Saturday:
UGM of Missoula Thrift Boutique and Home Furnishings is located at the corner of Front and Orange Street. When Saint Patrick Hospital decided to gift their thrift boutique to a local non-profit, as one of three applicants we submitted our proposal and were very blessed to receive the store. What a great celebration on opening day, June 2, 2009!
Since then, the store manager has done a wonderful job in creating an atmosphere of a cozy but stylish boutique. Quality donated goods are sold as a double benefit to the buyer and to UGM of Missoula ministry participants. All proceeds from the store support the ministries of UGM of Missoula, but financial contributions are not the only means of support happening at this boutique. Each day, people tack up prayer requests to the Prayer Wall and Boutique staff are available to pray in the dedicated Prayer Room.
Working hand-in-hand with all UGM of Missoula ministries, the Thrift Boutique is the central distribution location for the Mission. While food donations are brought directly to the Day Center, other donations of clothing or hard goods are brought to the Thrift Boutique for sorting and distribution to the ministry area with the greatest need.
For example, to distribute a recent large donation of blankets, imagine trying to sort and distribute those fifty blankets during meal service to the homeless at the Day Center! Instead, the Thrift Boutique stored them for distribution of ten at a time to the Day Center, enabling uninterrupted meal service and orderly distribution to those most in need of these blankets in the freezing winter weather.
