Support ARC's ministries by donating, shopping, or volunteering at Blue Butterfly Thrift Store, opening in December 2020!
Local WELS ministries are excited to announce the opening of a new thrift store in Oconomowoc, which is planned to open in early December 2020. Alpha Resource Center, Christian Family Solutions (WLCFS) and Tomorrow’s Choice are working together to raise funds and support primary ministry areas that relate to the sanctity of life, mental health counseling, and senior care services.
The name Blue Butterfly was chosen because, first and foremost, the butterfly symbolizes the grace we all have received through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The blue butterfly represents life, joy, change and hope. At Blue Butterfly Thrift Store, we want to develop a positive warm environment working with volunteers and helping others know and understand more about the gospel.
We are asking for the support of our area congregations and community to help us with the overall need for volunteers to help us start and to also be part of an ongoing volunteer effort and donations.
Here are some of the many volunteer opportunities:
• Leading volunteers
• Helping unload drive-up donations
• Sorting items
• Clerking (bagging, straightening, customer service)
• Building maintenance
• Store cleaning/seasonal decoration - interior and exterior
• Working from home (fixing items, sorting and pricing jewelry, checking toys and limited electronics, etc.)
After Thanksgiving, we will begin accepting item donations at the store. We would also greatly appreciate monetary donations to help us with the initial start-up costs of opening the store and supporting ministry. We are also currently accepting monetary gifts through PayPal at alphalifecenter.org/paypal.
