NEWS: Bethlehem Center Opens Upscale Thrift Store

Follow the story as we work to open a second thrift store. An upscale thrift store, located in the heart of downtown Visalia will aim to help Bethlehem Center continue to grow its services to meet the ever-increasing need.

The Bethlehem Center is in need of volunteers to help launch our second thrift store which will be located in downtown Visalia on Court Street. Help is needed setting up fixtures, pricing and merchandising. Work can be done on a flexible schedule, evenings and weekends are okay too.

Contact Benny to learn more and get started:

Donations are also being accepted at this time. Call to have your donation picked up on your schedule!
