Mission Minded

February 2020

Bethesda Lutheran Communities is one of our two Mission Bank projects for the year.   One way to support this ministry is by donating items to or shopping at Bethesda Thrift Shops.

Since the first thrift shop opened in the 1960s, our thrift shops have been an important place for people of all abilities to connect with Bethesda & each other.

When you shop at, donate to, or volunteer at a Bethesda Thrift Shop, you’ll join in their mission to enhance the lives of people with intellectual & developmental disabilities. The income generated by their thrift shops helps the people they support lead fuller lives.

The thrift shops also provide local, affordable shopping options to families in the communities they serve & employment opportunities for people of all abilities. Operating 16 thrift shops in seven states across the country, Bethesda’s thrift shops are a direct way for members of the community to support & connect with their mission.
