I am a regular shopping participant at the Resale Shop in Gladstone. I love what they are doing for others and try to support them as much as possible with donations and of course shopping. I do window displays for Arthur Bryant's Brooklyn location and am always finding great items at the shop.

This organization is absolutely awesome!! I have donated to Operation School Bell over the past few years, but never had a chance to see the facility in person. Recently, however, I got a tour of Operation School Bell along with a description of each child's experience. It is so wonderful! The clothes are all new, organized, neatly and creatively displayed, and it's all done with love and care. I then did some shopping at the Re-Sale Shop. I, again, was witness to the hard work done by so many dedicated volunteers. The Shop is well organized and run with grace and respect for all who enter. It's this kind of organization that changes a community and the world!
