Help Support the Youth Ranch
Serve as a volunteer at our Thrift Stores in Ingram. The revenue generated by these stores directly supports the children and programs on our campuses. While you will not be working with children in this role, your work benefits them directly. Our Thrift Store volunteers are a wonderful part of our Ranch family and typically work 4 or more hours on a weekly basis.
About the hcyr thirft store
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.
