After being in business for 33 years, the Moorhead Thrift Store recently reached a milestone. We have given $400,000 to local charities, something we are very proud of. The Moorhead Thrift Store, a nonprofit secondhand store selling clothing and a variety of other household and personal items, is located at the corner of Main Avenue and Fifth Street in Moorhead in the McDonald Plaza.

We are a nonprofit organization run entirely by a group of regular volunteers who donate their time and energy to keep the store operating. I would like to publicly thank all of our dedicated volunteers, both past and present, for their hard work and commitment.

The Moorhead Thrift Store has not only provided a service to this community through the many thousands of dollars donated to charities, but by selling quality items at affordable prices, which in today's economy is of more concern than ever to people who are struggling to make ends meet.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you in the community who have supported us over the years by making donations and/or shopping at our store. Without you, none of this would have been possible. As John Henry Jowepp so wisely stated, "God does not comfort us to make us comfortable, but to make us comforters."
