Furniture Donation through ‘Ocoee Thrift Mart’
Locals Helping Locals
According to Jacqueline “Thrift-Mart’s motto is locals helping locals”. The strain on our economy has had a major impact on the financial support that charities are receiving. We think this is a good way to raise money to help people in need, right here in our community. The Ocoee Thrift Mart gives their customers very reasonable prices for many household goods and clothing. The mission is to raise funds through reducing, reusing and recycling gently used donated items. We turn the donations into cash which can be given to charities that help local people in need.
