The Purple Door Thrift Store


The communities that Parent-Child Center serves are very generous and donate numerous items, including; clothing, bedding, towels, furniture, dishes, toys, and other household items.  “The Purple Door” was established in 2020 with the goal of generating unrestricted funds for emergency financial aid for clients and general operating support for both the store and the agency.

Clothing, dishes, and bedding are currently available at no cost to anyone in need.  Area service providers (Micah’s House, HHS, CASA, Mid-Nebraska, public schools, etc.) refer individuals to us that are in need. These individuals, as well as the clients we serve, are still able to receive items at no cost.
