THE STORY:

Lincoln City is a rural community of about 8000 people; it is one of the poorest cities in Lincoln County, which itself is one of the poorest counties in Oregon. Lincoln City has a poverty rate of 20.08%; a child poverty rate of 25.14%; and 44.14% of Lincoln City residents are low-income and eligible for SNAP food stamps. The Beachtown Charities Thrift Store, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, is a new Thrift Store open to everyone, but particularly for the low-income residents of Lincoln City and North Lincoln County. Proceeds from Thrift Store sales will be donated to local charities that assist homeless families with children and over 150 food-insecure children. In addition, free unsold clothing and other items will be given to uncounted homeless people living in cars, tents, and on the ground in Lincoln City. The goal of this fundraiser is to purchase Thrift Store furnishings and supplies, such as shelving, bookcases, display cabinets, tables, chairs, and other such furnishings before the opening of the Thrift Store in first quarter of 2016, so all proceeds from the sale of donated items can be applied to the supported charities, Family Promise of Lincoln County and Backpacks for Kids, instead of toward purchasing supplies. Donations of these items will be sought first; then used reduced-price items will be purchased with the funds; and finally any remaining items will be purchased with the funds. The successful outcome has the necessary furnishings and supplies obtained, the Thrift Store fully equipped, and the Thrift Store open in first quarter of 2016. Thank you for helping us reach our goal of helping the low-income and homeless in Lincoln City.
