During this crazy Spring of 2020 we have all learned a lot!
Likely too much! :)
One thing we have learned is...to BEST continue to serve our youth, our families, we NEED to keep the revenues coming in.
We have survived. We will continue to survive. But, we need to grow up.
And for us that means a lot....including we need to NO LONGER only be a brick and mortar Resale Shop. We are very blessed to be in the great state of Texas. Our state and local officials have been NOTHING LESS THAN AWESOME as they kept us informed and supporting us!
Still, we know of many who are not so lucky. Some businesses are gone. Many non-profits may not be there for those who need them when their states reopen. Who can withstand not being open for months?
So, with that... it is time. We are going to begin an online store! And...we are SUPER EXCITED ABOUT IT!
We get so many amazing & fun donations. People donate items to us, and we sell them. And this allows us to pay our bills. Glitter and glue? Check! Volleyballs and books? CHECK! Crayons and footballs? Check! Insurance? CHECK! Paying our professionals? CHECK! Keeping the lights on? CHECK!
It all comes from our fundraising and much of our fundraising is on our Resale Shop!
So, keep your eyes open to this website! Soon...very VERY soon, we will be selling items right here!
Who is interested in seeing what we have? Who is ready for Afterschool America's Online Thrift Store?
Ready or not....it is coming! And it will help us keep serving youth and families!
You probably know us as an afterschool program...and that is EXACTLY what we are! We serve youth! We serve families! And we do that with the funds we raiser through our Resale Shop!
That is right!
Yes....we ARE an Afterschool Program!
