The Stafford PennyWise Resale Center coming soon to a new location
The Fort Bend County Women’s Center is excited to announce the moving of the Stafford PennyWise Resale Center currently at 13945 Murphy Rd, Stafford, 77477. The new location will open on or near January 22, 2014, next to Wendy’s at 13645 Murphy Rd, Ste. 107, Stafford – only three blocks away! The new location will have a brighter shopping atmosphere with the same great thrift store items. Easier access from Murphy Road for donors as well as customers will be available.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony will precede the Grand Opening and guest speakers include representatives from Fort Bend County and the Fort Bend County Women’s Center. During the week of the opening, Stafford PennyWise will have crafting classes and other activities.
The Fort Bend community has hosted many donation drives in October and November to help stock the shelves with great new items. The Women’s Center thanks all the organizations who joined in our donation drive endeavor. Participating organizations included the Stafford Police Department, Stafford Fire Station Number 1, Stafford Fire Station Number 2, Missouri City Hall, Missouri City Public Safety Headquarters, Missouri City Tennis and Recreation Center and the Missouri City Municipal Court Offices.
Net proceeds from the sale of items at PennyWise Resale Centers are used to fund the operation of the Women’s Center and its essential, life-saving programs. Additionally, many donated items are given directly to the women and children served by the Women’s Center. Approximately $85,000 worth of items is given directly to clients each year.
