Thrift shop helps out Christian City

The Clothes Less Traveled Thrift Shop gave a generous gift of $35,000 to Christian City to help care for seniors without resources for daily living and the abandoned and abused children living in the cottages at The Children’s Village. The Clothes Less Traveled is a not-for-profit thrift store located in Peachtree City and is always in need of donations and volunteers. Founded in 1962, Christian City provides healthcare and residential services to active seniors and the elderly offering a full continuum of care.

Often referred to as “a city within a city,” Christian City has more than 1,000 residents living on a 500-acre campus. To learn more, please visit www.christiancity.org or call 770-703-2636. To learn more about The Clothes Less Traveled, please access www.clotheslesstraveled.org.
