The thrift store at Blanco Good Samaritan Center accepts and sells generous donations of gently used clothing and household goods. All bargain priced, you'll find men's, women's and children's clothing, not to mention shoes, dishware, linens, books, toys, games and lots more. Depending on the season, you may also browse bathing suits, Christmas ornaments, Valentine cards and Easter baskets.
Sales of merchandise cover operating expenses and purchase of food for the center's food pantry.
Please note: The center cannot accept or sell mattresses, computers, computer parts and large furniture.
Thrift Store Hours
Thrift Store is closed until further notice due to the spread of COVID-19 in the community.
To the Community,
Reluctantly, Blanco Good Samaritan has decided to close its Thrift Store until further notice. The reason, once again, is the pandemic, which has spread Covid too close for comfort.
With the Christmas season arriving, Good Sam's store and storage area is packed. A regular retail store would gear up to try to recoup lost revenue in this highly unusual year. But ours is not a regular store and profit is not our goal. The health and safety of the community is what we're fixed on. That community is you - donors, shoppers, clients, neighbors. And it's us too, the volunteers.
We are disappointed that our store won't be able to accept donations which we, like you, want to clear out of our homes; that we cannot offer up useful goods at low prices, especially in this season. We regret that we cannot share the spirit of the holidays with you in the community space that is Good Sam.
The food pantry will remain open curbside and emergency aid available for as long as we are able. That's Good Samaritan's mission.
Our thanks for your support and understanding, our prayers for the good health of everyone --
