The Underground Thrift Store
Sundays 12:30 - 4:00 p.m.
25% of our net profits are donated to groups that fight human trafficking!
Our anti-slavery and human trafficking charity partner for 2014-15 is ECPAT-USA, a non-profit whose mission is to end slavery at the source. ECPAT-USA has been working for over 20 years to ensure a world in which no child is bought, sold or used for sex. ECPAT-USA is based in Brooklyn and has a global network of affiliates in 73 countries. ECPAT-USA exists to protect every child’s basic human right to grow up free from the threat of sexual exploitation and trafficking. 25% of our net proceeds will benefit the work of this remarkable organization.
Sarah Porter, Development Associate at ECPAT-USA, remarked “Here at ECPAT-USA, we are so excited to continue our partnership with Plymouth Church. The members of Plymouth Church have shown tremendous dedication to the issue of trafficking, and their support through the Underground Thrift Store enables us to continue our work to protect children from abuse and exploitation in the United States.” More information regarding ECPAT is available at www.ecpatusa.org.
