God’s Hand in Blessing Our Community
A group of volunteers, caring about family values and needs of the community decided to use their experiences, time and talents to earn monies to give back to the people and local ministries of the Greater Tomball area. Our goal is to provide ongoing funds for community needs without asking for financial contributions or engaging in additional fundraising activities. To achieve this purpose we opened a non-profit resale shop called Resale with a Purpose. We are not open to earn a profit for ourselves. The purpose is to give the proceeds from the sale of your donated items back to the ministries directly helping those in need within the greater Tomball area.
Since founding, we have helped provide consistent and growing financial support to over Twenty local ministries. In addition, we have helped many other organizations with cash and noncash support.
