~ Shop to help ~

Our thrift store is staffed and operated by volunteers. 100% of our proceeds benefit non-profit charitable organizations located in the Tulsa area.  The Thrift store's last day of business for 2015 will be December 11.  We are moving to 1732 E. 11th St.  That is right around the corner on 11th street and still on the Hillcrest Campus.  Parking is avaiable on the empty lot at Victor and 11th street as well in the Hillcrest parking lot.  We do not have a firm opening date though we are planning on January.  The new location will be a larger shop.  This will make shopping easier.  Remember Children's Medical Charities Thrift shop when you have items to donate.  We count on the public for that.!  Hope to see you there! 

Children's Medical Charities Association awarded over $77,500 in grants for 2014!!
