Mission thrift store is back open for business after surviving April's storms...
The Jimmie Hale Mission Ministries has helped the homeless and hurting for over 67 years. But in the wake of last week’s tornadoes that ravaged Alabama, the ministry was forced to close its Mission Possible Bargain Center in Hanceville due to extensive damage.
The Mission’s thrift stores offer affordable options for furniture, clothing and other goods and also offer job opportunities for those looking for work. Though the Mission does hire some clients to work in the thrift stores, most of its employees are neighbors from the community.
The Mission’s fundraising thrift store in Hanceville, known as the Mission Possible Bargain Center, was severely damaged after the April tornadoes that ravaged our area. But after the repair work was completed – including roof repair, window replacement and general debris cleanup – the store was reopened as of Thursday, June 16.
“We are so excited to have our Hanceville thrift store back in business,” said Adam Hazel, director of the Mission Possible Bargain Centers. “When we opened the store this morning there was a line of shoppers ready to find bargains.”
