New store opens to support survivors of human trafficking

Worthwhile Thrift celebrated the Grand Opening of its newest location in the Plumstead Square shopping center next to the Giant in Plumsteadville, April 27.

Customers braved the windy weather for a brief ribbon cutting ceremony and then were welcomed into the freshly renovated store for free food, coffee samples, give-aways, and a store-wide 50 percent off sale.

After opening it’s doors on April 1, Worthwhile Thrift staff and volunteers are encouraged by the excitement from the community and the success of the first four weeks.

Proceeds from Worthwhile Thrift stores help provide restorative services for survivors of human trafficking in Bucks and surrounding communities through Worthwhile Wear’s programs.

With the success of this new store, Worthwhile Wear, the umbrella nonprofit to Worthwhile Thrift, can continue to expand and grow its programs for survivors.

Worthwhile Wear established a long-term housing program, The Well, located on 82 acres in Bucks County, as a residential safe house where trafficked survivors can work through trauma and rebuild their lives both physically and emotionally.

Survivors are also offered an opportunity to receive care and training through Worth It, a community-based outreach and empowerment program for survivors of sexual exploitation and forced prostitution, helping connect participants to local services and reestablish each woman’s worth.

Worthwhile Thrift is grateful for its hard working staff, dedicated volunteers, loyal customers and generous donors who help make this possible. Those who are interested in volunteering or joining the team and impacting the life of a survivor, may visit or email
