Global Neighborhood Thrift moving to much larger space on Trent

Global Neighborhood Thrift is currently planning a huge move and expansion coming in the first part of next year. The store, which supports the larger Global Neighborhood non-profit will be relocateing to the space currently occupied by Catholic Charities Furniture Bank at 919 E. Trent.

Plans call for the organization to move there sometime in the spring from their current home at 902 W. Indiana. The move allows Global Neighborhood to nearly double the size of their operation as the new location on Trent is 22700 square feet. And, to assist in the move they have started fundraising via https://tinyurl.com/gnimpact , they hope to raise $35,000 with the Smith-Barbieri Progressive Fund matching up to $10,000 of the donations.

Global Neighborhood is a 501c3 employment focused social enterprise business that provides opportunities to former refugees so they can thrive and contribute as equal members of our community. All proceeds from the Global Neighborhood Thrift store are used for job training and paychecks for the people in the program. In the past 7 years Global Neighborhood has provided job training to 115 former refugees from 29 different countries. With this expansion and move they aim to double the number of people who are employed by Global Neighborhood Thrift.

Global Neighboorhood Thrift sells a bit of everything from clothing to shoes to books. Really most anything you'd expect to find in a thrift store and perhaps even more. For more information on Global Neighborhood Thrift, check out their website at- http://gnthrift.com
