The Hill Country Youth Ranch Thrift Store
"This is by far, one of the best thrift stores in the Hill Country!"
- Recent customer
HCYR’s Kerr County Auxiliary has operated a thrift store since the organization was formed in 1977. The first “store” was run out of a storage unit, with members taking turns on Saturdays to put stuff out on tables in the driveway. The purpose was to raise funds and find furnishings for the first children’s cottage, scheduled to open in 1978.
The store was an instant hit with volunteers and community shoppers alike. In 1990, it landed it's current location at 3171 Junction Highway in Ingram. The store serves a two-fold purpose of providing support to the children's homes, and bargains for shoppers. Thanks to an all-volunteer team, the thrift store sends 100% of its funds (minus a few utility bills) to the Ranch. The store is always in need of quality items to sell, and continues to grow, serving the community as well as the children.
If you're in the area, stop by the thrift store in Ingram, Texas to get some real bargains and help the cause, supporting the children. If you have some time, the store is always looking for new volunteers; even a few hours a week would help the volunteers operate the store. If you want to get involved in a group that truly makes a difference, there are plenty of ways to help.
