Stained and Torn Clothing Helps the Sioux City Gospel Mission

The Gospel Mission Thrift Store generates revenue for our ministry from donated clothing that never gets sold.  Hmmm…you may ask “How does that work?”  The clothing we receive that is either stained, torn or missing buttons is placed into our baler.  We’ve contracted with a company to pick up our baled clothing (and baled cardboard) on a price/lb basis.  So whether your donated clothing is sold through the store, or in a bale, the Mission is blessed to generate income either way.  This revenue stream affords us the opportunity to provide clothing vouchers to support our “Friends in Need” that might otherwise go without.
