Plus funding of our new home for God's Goods opened in September of 2016!!
God's Goods exists as a Christ-Centered store to provide usable goods to the people of our community at a reasonable price; to assist people in need by pass-through goods; and to support outreach ministries of The Anglican Church.
God's Goods is staffed exclusively by friendly and willing volunteers. The merchandise is donated primarily by members of the Bluffton, Okatie and Hilton Head Communities. A wide variety of used clothing, electronics, house ware, toys, books and furniture is available at low prices. All merchandise is examined and tested before it is offered for sale. Pickup service is provided at no cost to donors. Delivery service is also provided at a modest cost.
God's Goods Thrift Store is a non-profit ministry of the The Anglican Church. The store opened on July 31, 2010 at its previous location in Sheridan Park. In September 2016 the Lord blessed us with a new location at 15A Centre Drive!
The store's business hours are Tuesday 10:00am to 7:00pm, Wednesday through Friday 10:00am to 4pm and Saturday 10:00am to 1:00pm.
Our merchandise is donated primarily by members of the Bluffton, Okatie and Hilton Head Communities. The proceeds from God's Goods support the church's missionary activities throughout the community and the world.
