Angels Attic Thrift Shop was founded July 11, 2002 by St. John’s Episcopal Church, with proceeds benefiting the Murray/Calloway County community with over $2.5 million dollars to support the Angels Community Clinic through 2012 and now the Gentry House.
We assist about 350 people each year through our voucher referral program, giving away some $13,000 in merchandise to those in need identified to us by various local organizations, such as: Red Cross, Calloway County School Family Resource Youth Service Center, Community Based Services, Murray City School Resource Center, and Needline.
We loan various medical equipment (i.e. wheel chairs, walkers, and canes) to those in need free of charge.
We provide full-time and part-time employment, including the disadvantaged as well as provides work release opportunities.
We have over 35 regular volunteers who help us in our mission.
In 2005, we served as a clearing house for clothing and household item donations to Katrina evacuees.
