Summer Newsletter
Summer is finally here!
Start the season off with a trip to the Charity Cottage Thrift Store! There is always a deal to take advantage of, so that you can find treasures in our store without spending all your summer fun money.

The Charity Cottage Thrift Store has coffee and pastries available in our cafe area, an art gallery, doll shop,  vintage and upscale clothes at bargain prices, as well as, live bluegrass music every Monday afternoon!
All proceed go toward benefiting our three partnering non-profits, The West End Center for Youth, Manna Ministries, and Project Access.

Help fight poverty without having to empty your own wallet! 

By using one of the Charity Cottage Thrift Store Kroger gift cards to purchase your food or gas,  you will be giving a percentage of your purchase back to charity!

With the Kroger Gift Card, spend like you usually do, and the Charity Cottage Thrift Store will receive 5% of the profit! So, If you spend even just $200 per month, that’s a $10 donation. Over the period of a year, $120 donated to a nonprofit that is making a difference in lives in our community.

You only have to remember to continuously put money on the gift card – money that you will spend anyway on groceries, fuel, and prescriptions.

It doesn’t have to be done ahead of time – just do 2 transactions at the register before your purchase! Ask the cashier to load up your gift card, and turn around and use the gift card to pay for your groceries. We’ll get 5% of whatever you spend!

Cinco De Mayo Cupcakes at the Cottage Bake-Off

The Charity Cottage Thrift Store recently hosted the Cinco De Mayo Cupcakes at the Cottage Bake-Off as a fundraising event in order to raise money for the partnering non-profits that the store contributes to.

There were 8 bakers entered in the competition with a total of 15 dozen cupcakes contributed to the event! All of the cupcake flavors stuck to the Cinco De Mayo theme of the event and just some of the delicious array include, Hot Chocolate with Rum and Jalapeno frosting, Strawberry Daiquiri, Tres Leche , Chocolate Raspberry, and Chocolate Ancho Chili Flourless. The baker to take first place was Penny Pickens with her Malibu Bay Breeze cupcakes, runner up was the Margarita cupcakes made by baker Kathy Jacoby, and the third place was taken by Penny Pickens again with her Pina Colada cupcake creations! The cupcakes were judged by a local radio DJ on, Pamela Wolfe, a local baker, Anne Meador, whose business was originally started by The Advancement Foundation’s business incubator project, and by Becky Freemal who is an anchor on the local news channel Fox 21/27 10 o’clock news.
