SACRAMENTO – A new thrift store had its grand opening on Saturday. All the proceeds will go towards helping victims of domestic violence and human trafficking.
"We deal with a lot of families, a lot of individuals who need help," said Shawna Stanfill, the store's general manager. "They can't afford the services. They're desperate and have nowhere else to go."
The non-profit called, Hope Industries, is located at the intersection of Auburn Boulevard and Myrtle Avenue; not far from American River College in Sacramento.
The owner and general manager of the store both work in the private investigation field and saw a need to help the families of those that have gone missing.
The store will be open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
