This organization is one of the most hard working groups with which I have ever been a part. Their programs and willingness to fulfill their obligations to the Wichita community is exceptional. It is a total volunteer organization, with no paid positions. Dedicated members run a successful Thrift Shop,which help to support the programs. The organization gives students scholarships to a community college and a technical School. They support needy children through the Operation School Bell program, having clothed 2714 this year and 78,000 since 1985. They support a program that helps give comfort to abused children. I am proud to be a member of this organization. Prue Schmidt

This is a great place the selection is always changing. No junk only the best. You never know what you will find. $900.00 blouses for $50.00. $100.00 perfume foe $20. O0. Where else would you find that?? No smell always clean. Friendly people, plenty of parking.
All funds go back to the community, no paid staff. Help support Operation School Bell, Abused Women and Children. Help others learn a trade through. Schooling .
Come join us!

I have been a member for a little over a year in this all volunteer philanthropic organization. The success of these like-minded, committed and caring members is phenomenal. In 2013, we clothed over 3,500 students in USD 259, supported 355 victims of rape or domestic violence and granted over $8,000 to post secondary students to complete a job skill or certificate program. It is amazing the difference a small group of dedicated women can do for a community. Our Thrift Shop at 2431 E Douglas is a major part of the reason that we can continue to provide these services. Please drop by and shop or consider becoming a member to connect and care with a wonderful community.
