We are pleased to announce our partnership with Door of Hope as they open a new SACS Family Thrift Store location in Sterling. Door of Hope, a non-profit charitable organization based out of Ashburn, VA has partnered with local churches in Nicaragua, Haiti and Sierra Leone to provide assistance in addressing the oppression, poverty, disease and lack of education opportunities that keep much of the world’s population spiritually lost. Door of Hope collects, sorts and ships used clothes to these poverty-stricken areas which are resold, creating funds for clean water development, employment training, job opportunities, improved sanitation and more than anything else, bringing the hope of Christ to impoverished people.
Your donation of gently used clothing and household items will make a difference in many lives. Through the new Family Thrift Store in Sterling, we are able to make low-cost items available to our local in-need community. Funds from the thrift store directly fund the various international projects mentioned above. In the near future, some of the funds raised will be used to further serve our local community as well. As our partnership with Door of Hope grows, it is our desire to have opportunities to make fully devoted followers of Christ through our relationships with the local customers of the new Sterling location.
