“The opportunity to operate in this location came to us through a single donor who had opened the store for his brother to manage,” says Nasheedah Bynes-Muhammad, LNFY Deputy Director for Operations. “When his brother moved back to Mexico, he approached us at the main LNFY Thrift Store about taking over the shop. He donated many clothes, appliances, and most of the fixtures.”
“The Gwinnett store will provide us with the opportunity to reach out into a new market and offer increased convenience as a North Metro area donation center,” says Executive Director Rick Westbrook.
Both LNFY Thrift Stores accept donations of clothing, household goods, furniture, toys, appliances, and electronics, making them a destination for serious thrifters. In addition to raising funds for the organization, the Thrift Stores offer paid employment for clients who wish to gain retail work experience and outfits those who need professional clothing for job interviews.
