Children’s Center to open thrift store in fall



    NASHVILLE – The Howard County Children’s Center will be opening a thrift store this fall.
    HCCC will be accepting donations such as clothes, shoes, purses, home décor, glassware, knickknacks, and toys beginning August 3. Donations will need to be dropped off at the Children’s Center Recycling Building between the times of 7:30 and 3:30 during the week.
    The Children’s Center will process all items and then transport them to the store that will be located at 521 N. Main Street.
    According to center Assistant Director Rose Ray, “this will give HCCC clients another venture to be productive citizens of Nashville. The clients will learn skills needed to work in the retail business.”
    “Other centers like ours have similar thrift stores,” said Ray.
    Along with aiding clients in retail skills, the thrift store project will also increase recycling.
    After expanding the recycling center by 4,500 sq. ft., the center has more capabilities to recycle larger amounts of products. Any donated items that may be broken, stained, or otherwise unusable will be recycled.
