Community Helping Hands, located at the Gateway Center, exists to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of people to show them the love of Christ as we equip and empower them to help themselves and others. One of the ways we accomplish this mission is through an operation of a second-hand thrift-store, where items are sold to the public and also given away to eligible individuals and families with emergency needs for clothing, household items, and furniture. The operation of the store and management of donations provides opportunities for work experience, job training and mentoring for those assigned to work experience, community service and/or volunteer work.

The purpose of the Store Manager is to supervise all daily operations related to the Depot Thrift Store and Furniture Showrooms, including overseeing the management of donations, daily deposit, monthly bag sale, and Sewing Room. All first floor supervisors (warehouse, sorting room, bag sale, sewing room, showrooms) report to the Store Manager. CHH considers this to be a ministry position. The Store Manager reports to the Executive Director.
