My name is Jessie, and I have the privilege of managing the Treasures Thrift store, which supports the mission of the Help and Hope Center. Prior to taking the manager role in 2020, I was a client advocate, and saw in a very personal way, how critical this agency is to the lives of those in our community who are experiencing difficult challenges. Before that, I spent some time volunteering with Help and Hope Center. For those that may not know, the entire agency is supported by an army of passionate volunteers forming the bedrock upon which Help and Hope is built–and we are always looking for new volunteers by the way!
There are a few things that excite me about coming to work every day. I have the honor of leading an enthusiastic team of men and women who love to serve our customers and our community. I get to have a hand in curating the merchandise inside one of the best kept secrets in Castle Rock – Treasures Thrift. We try to make it feel like a boutique when you walk in. Whether you are looking for an amazing selection of books, CDs/DVDs/records, antiques, toys, household goods, clothing, seasonal items, and much more, we have it all! Every item is inspected by our team, and only the best quality items make it to the floor. It is not uncommon for new customers to walk around saying, “Wow, I never even knew this place existed!”
Lastly, I get to witness first hand the incredible ways in which the proceeds from our sales, get funneled right back into the community in which I live and work. I love this place, and I think you will too! I look forward to seeing all of you soon, new friends and customers, as well as our long time supporters. We couldn’t do it without you!
