Spring cleaning in the summer :)
by Tori Snyder | June 26, 2017

Half of our team is currently cleaning floors, organizing shelfs and sorting clothes for Double Portion Thift Store. Their are several things that make this store unique!

First off it was starting in order to provide jobs for women who have been saved from sex trafficing. Secondly all of the clothes and supplies in the store is donated to the store to sell. Thridly the profit from the sales go towards maintaing the store, providing houseing for many women going through rehab after trafficing and towards events and expenses that help keep people off the streets!! 

The store was opened through an oganization called Love Never Fails! 

Please pray for the Lord to bless this ministry/store and that their success my multiply to impact more lives!
