Unity Shoppe
updated: Dec 14, 2013, 10:00 AM

The Unity Shoppe's mission statement is to provide the basic necessities of life while encouraging self- sufficiency and independent living during periodic times of crisis for low-income families, children the elderly and those affected by fire, flood and disaster.

Unity Shoppe provides a "Central Distribution Facility" for the use of all non-profit agencies, social service organizations, churches, schools and hospitals. Over 300 different service groups are now referring their low-income clients to this facility during times of crisis.

Unity Shoppe operates a "Free Store" where qualified people can shop, eliminating wasteful giving. By documenting and qualifying those that need support services, by eliminating duplication of services more people can find better and more consistent support services throughout the year. We coordinate food drives and collect donated merchandise whenever possible. We also purchase needed foods items that are generally not donated to us. We add healthy, nutritious food to our inventory so children, families and the elderly can be given healthy choices.

You can participate in the Unity Shoppe's Holiday Wish Tree for this holiday season.
