Every time shoppers purchase items, they can feel good knowing they are helping the mommas and babies of Place 4 Grace. All funds generated by the thrift shop will benefit the ministries of Place 4 Grace. “My family has supported Place 4 Grace from the beginning of the ministry. When Kandee approached me about this opportunity I was excited & nervous. My family prayed about it & God definitely opened doors for me to be in this position. I can’t wait to see how God uses p4g THRIFT to help provide funding for Place 4 Grace, our mommas & babies.” says Store Manager, Beth Landis.
