Launch of our new “Give What You Can” Thrift Store
Inspired by Jon Bon Jovi’s Soul Kitchen
My Neighbor in Need, your local GOOD DEED DOER organization has fulfilled over 1,400 need requests in just our first 17-months of operation! In June of 2013, My Neighbor in Need reinvented the world of retail by launching the most unique Thrift Store concept ever, “Give What You Can.”
The “Give What You Can” Community Thrift Store originally opened inside the basement of the Roger’s Jeweler’s building. In just six-months, the outpouring of support was so large we needed a bigger location, and we found the perfect place! Beginning on December 6, 2013 all for divisions of My Neighbor in Need will be housed under one roof. My Neighbor in Need, My Student in Need, The Pet- Food Pantry and the “Give What You Can” Community Thrift Store will be housed all under one roof at 525 Central Ave – inside Times Square – Downtown Great Falls, Montana!
The “Give What You Can” Community Thrift Store features quality, used appliances, furniture and housewares. Every item has a “Give What You Can” minimum price however since the minimum price is extremely low, (washing machines starting at $30) the buyer, if he/she has the capacity to pay more, they may opt to “Give What They Can.” All of the net proceeds that My Neighbor in Need receives from the Thrift Store will go to help fulfill need requests received through www.myneighborinneed.org.
www.myneighborinneed.org, developed by Tom Penwell of Tom’s Web Designs, allows for anyone to ask for help with a specific need whether the need is for themselves or for someone else in their community by simply going to the website and completing the Request a Need form and clicking submit. If a person does not have access to the website to complete the form, they may call 406-453-HELP (4357) and the form can be completed over the phone. In addition, the Request for a Need form can mailed to P.O. Box 1788 Great Falls, MT 59403.
