MONROE — Rolling Hills Ministries celebrated the grand opening of its Monroe thrift store April 20.
The $1.8 million, 15,600 sq. ft. store is the fourth to be opened by the ministry. Rolling Hills also operates locations in Arcadia, Bossier City and Ruston. The new Monroe location accepts drop off items, and picks up donations such as furniture and other large items. Proceeds help fund Rolling Hills’ compassion center, which is located in the same building as the thrift store.
This summer, Rolling Hills will begin teaching a retail certification for women who are residents of the Home Place family ministry at the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home. The ministry also plans to offer a course to prepare others for the High School Equivalency exam.
Located at 5339 Desiard Street, the store is open 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, and 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For information about serving as a volunteer or donating items, call 318.381.8500 or 318.251.0065 or visit rollinghillsministries.com.
