Mission India Super Thrift has got to be one of the classiest thrift shops I've ever been in and they have sales every week. Give them a try.Some of the nicest people volunteer there, too, and one of them is a professional decorator who sets up the most attractive furniture arrangements. 2149 Plainfield Ave. Same block as Kay Pharmacy and Cheshire Grill.
I love to volunteer at missin India thepeople are always cheerful and very helpful. The place is always clean and a pleasant place to work. They always have other volunteers to help that are very nice also. It is so much fun to go to a place that is doing work that is so important in the advance of Gods kingdom in other countrys.
There is more to any nonprofit than meets the eye. Annual reports offer overviews and statistics. Meetings and presentations provide a glimpse of the work being done, its value to humankind, and a vision for the future. But to really know the heart of an organization, you need to know the people involved. I have gotten to know some of the folks in the home office. This is not work to them, it is a calling. The brilliant things they do include involving indigenous leaders to reach the people they serve, communicating the Gospel through children's Bible clubs and adult literacy classes, and church-planting with ministry partners in India. They do all of this while developing new ways to inform their donors and the public at large via social media, email, videos and ground-breaking opportunities to catch the excitement of changed lives. Mission India (http://www.missionindia.org/) has roots extending back to 1970, and was organized at Bibles for India in 1980, then became Mission India in 1990. They are launching a new effort to assist parents and children in the West in learning more about their work and give them the opportunity to make a difference in lives in India -- it's their exciting "Lost in India" program with a free "Adventure Kit" to make families better informed and invite them to join in. I believe that any donation given to Mission India will be used most carefully and wisely to further the kingdom of Christ and spread the Gospel in India. Don't hesitate to get involved with them.
I have done Video and Photography work for Mission India and have gotten to see what they do and how they do it firsthand. This is one of the best organizations working in India today and I'm proud to work with them.
I have seen first-hand the work that this organization does. I have never seen an organization that has done more with the limited funds that they have. Through there extensive volunteer network the limited funds are magnified and significant life change has been the result for many Indian people. I would strongly encourage people to look at this organization for future contributions!
