Community Threads

A group serve from UPS

Community Threads is a 100% non-profit resale store located in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. The profits raised by our store benefit local charities and provide scholarships for children's education, grants given to a homeless shelter and food pantry in Chicago, and funds for leadership training programs. We are able to accept items and sell them at an affordable price and keep items out of the landfills.

Community Threads is a great environment for groups to serve in because we have numerous departments and tasks to work in and complete. Our staff members are equipped with instruction for leading groups on a variety of projects-from lifting and moving boxes of donations, to sorting clothing, housewares, toys, and jewelry, to helping organize and clean our sales floor. Both sitting and standing jobs are available.

Community Threads has plenty of parking, restrooms, air conditioning and heating, complimentary water bottles and treats, and a break room for groups to meet and discuss the serve. This is a great way for groups to build team spirit and give back to their local community!

Available service times: Monday through Friday from 10 am to 8 pm.

Mission Statement

Community Threads is a nonprofit ministry that makes grants and runs programs supporting education and the relief of poverty.

Description

Community Threads brings together a network of local ministries to help the homeless and underserved in our community through the operation of a nonprofit thrift store. The store provides a way for these ministries, our donors and shoppers to make a difference in these tough times. Through your donations of quality goods, Community Threads is able to provide the best stuff at the lowest possible price to shoppers on a budget and then return all the profits back to our communities for much needed services.

All profits from the store go directly to provide quality education to needy students, shelter for the abused and homeless, addiction recovery programs and other critical services right here where we live. We welcome new volunteers into the store. Sign up for our e-newsletter for special coupons and store news.
