An area ministry is on the move, literally.
The Project Worth shop and Thrift Store that used to be housed inside Watered Gardens Gospel Rescue Mission has a new home.
A ribbon cutting on the new facility located just a block away from the mission was held on Thursday.
The square footage of both the shop and store went from just a few hundred square feet to a total of 6 thousand.
Executive Director James Whitford says the project was two years in the making.
“Once we did some metal recycling, breaking down metals to be able to craft them into jewelry, you get all sorts of donations that take up quite a bit of space, so this just allows us to receive more and to help more people recognize their own worth and value through earning what it is they need,” says Whitford.
He adds there was more than $100,000 of in-kind donations that made the move possible.
The structure used to be the Redbud Air Filter building prior to its conversion into the Worth Shop.
