27 Parishes Participate in 'Bargains and Blessings' Workshop

At the Episcopal Ministries of Long Island Thrift Store Workshop on Oct 7, over 50 attendees representing 27 parishes learned how to make their thrift stores a thriving ministry. Presenters from three parishes shared their experience about everything from merchandising to marketing to volunteer management. The attendees learned that the ministry truly thrives when there’s a welcoming space that offers more than bargains but also the blessings of a caring community.
