The University Temple Thrift Store is more than a store. It is a welcoming community where you can find a cup of coffee, a bite to eat, and a willing listener. Shopping hours are Friday from 1:30 -4:30 pm with a wide array of new and used items for minimal prices. Volunteers from the church and the community work together to provide this low cost shopping opportunity . Proceeds from the sales are used to buy sleeping bags, underwear, socks, and backpacks for neighbors in need. Contact: ThriftStore@utemple.org.
