The Catholic Thrift Store
For 35 years, the Catholic Thrift Store has never closed its doors for lack
of volunteers whom through their generous spirits —from their wholehearted
service to their heartfelt smiles— have made this journey and milestone of
35 years possible. We are proud to say that the Thrift Store embodies the
essence of volunteerism, which is uniquely St. George as a city and as a
service community, and that each day we are open celebrates the Heart of
hundred-twenty (120) volunteers celebrated the store’s 35th anniversary at
the annual Volunteer Appreciation luncheon, which was held at the Marriott.
Guest speakers were Angie Mittleberger, one of the original volunteers who
started the store; Steve Cross, former Store General Manager for 10+ years;
Reverend Father Martin Picos; and Mayor John Pike. Angie and Steve spoke of
past experiences regarding their years with the store and shared their
memories. Father Martín spoke of the service given by the many volunteers,
and Mayor John Pike thanked the
volunteers and the store for the many contributions given to the community.

The Catholic Thrift
Store has been in operation for more than 27 years. Since
the store was first opened, its Mission Statement has
remained constant: All of the net income has been dedicated
to the building fund. Typically we donate in excess of
$200,000 annually to the building fund and do hundreds of
cases of charity. Our entire inventory is recycled
merchandise that might otherwise be discarded, offered at
quite reasonable prices.

Begun as a non-profit
organization on St. Patrick Day, 1981, the store had a
small group of about six women volunteers.
Today, the store has over 160 unpaid
volunteers − and its first
paid administrative employee. It is a fun place to work
where we try to assist our church, the community and the
needy. Most volunteers work one
four hour shift each week.
Each of them takes pride in their
work, pride in helping their community, and pride in helping
their Parish. Over the years the Catholic Thrift Store has
been a significant source of funds needed to cope with
growth of the parish.
One of our many, fun-loving
volunteers can arrange a tour of our operation so you can
determine if this is something that might be of interest to
you. Call the store for more information.
