Thrit Story

Our Story

To understand the story and founding of Patty’s Hope, read here. Patty’s Thrift was just founded in 2024, but it is birthed out of much prayer and several goals:

1.  Community: To create community through shared experiences as mothers served by Patty's Hope work side by side staff, volunteers, shoppers, and donators.

2.  Employment: To provide opportunities for moms, being served through Patty’s Hope, to work at the thrift store, making income through meaningful work while healthy relationships and mentoring can happen

3. Program opportunities: As income is generated from the store, the Patty's Hope program hopes to increase its ability to provide more help to the mothers they serve.

4. Advocacy: To broaden the awareness of families in crisis within Richmond and surrounding areas and the work of Patty’s Hope to help them.

Volunteer with us

Volunteers are the heartbeat of our ministry! We value you and hope you will enjoy your experience volunteering as you serve this ministry, help customers, and hopefully make new friends who are serving alongside of you.

 

We are looking for volunteers who believe in our mission and want to be involved in creatively raising funds, through the thrift store, to further the work of Patty’s Hope, supporting biological moms whose kids have been placed in foster care. (Read our mission and vision to learn more about why we exist.)

 

We are looking for people who are willing to volunteer regularly. Ideally, we would like people to volunteer once a week or every other week for 3-hour blocks of time. You are welcome to volunteer up to 5 hours at a time if you would like, but no more than that. We want to maintain your energy for volunteering again in the near future. Regular volunteers will be known by regular customers and will know the layout and routine.  This will be instrumental in helping our store to run smoothly. 

 

The types of activities that the volunteers will do are greeting customers, sorting clothes by size and hanging them, dusting and light cleaning of newly brought in items, rearranging furniture as items get sold, sorting and straightening/sorting books, appliances, linens, etc.

 

If you would like to apply, here is the link to our application.  Once you apply, we will respond to you in less than a week. All potential volunteers will be asked to carefully read and sign the volunteer manual.

Contact Stephanie at stephanie@pattyshope.org for further details.
