New thrift store helps homeless vets

Posted

DORA – Carol Jones of Nobel Work opened a thrift store in the Midway Shopping Center in Dora on May 1, accepting unwanted items, such as furniture, housewares, clothing donations and books. 

Noble Work is similar to other thrift stores, but the president and other employees do not receive any funds from the donations that come in the store. All of those funds go for paychecks for homeless veterans. 

Noble Work recently hired John Kirby, who is a homeless veteran, to do maintenance on donated tools and other items given to the thrift store. 

“The money we take in at this store goes to pay the homeless veterans we employ,” Jones said. 

Noble Work also supports disaster relief. “If someone has a home fire, flood, or other disaster, they can come in to get a voucher and shop for free,” she said. 

The hours at Noble Work are 8 a.m. till 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
