Our History

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.

Our Service

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, HOPE Calloway, Murray City School Resource Center, and Need Line.

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.
