Serving our Community
The Helping Hands Thrift Store is a ministry of the Bonne Terre Ministerial Alliance. It is run almost solely by volunteers and provides many reasonably priced items to the community such as clothing, furniture, household items, and toys. The money earned through this ministry goes directly back into the community through our assistance program which provides financial resources for utilities, prescriptions, food, hygiene items, and clothing. We accept donations during business hours.
