The Calhoun County Cares Thrift Store is located at the John Ford Center on Agnes Street in St. Matthews. Calhoun County Cares is run by volunteers and collects donated clothes, housewares, books, furniture, and other items for sale to the public at “thrift store” prices. Proceeds from the sales are used to benefit individuals in Calhoun County who need help paying for prescription medicine and electric or heating bills. The individuals needing this help are recommended by Calhoun County Department of Social Services and bills are paid directly to pharmacies and heating and electricity suppliers. Members of our church volunteer at Calhoun County Cares on Thursday afternoon or Saturday morning to help with sorting, placing, and selling the donated items.
