On Friday the group gave a total of $1,600 in donations to the Care Net Pregnancy Resource Center, Rapid City Women's Aglow, Calvary Christian School and the Team India mission team.
Store manager Robert Brancoto says, "It has been amazing. The volunteer help that we're getting in, the donations that we're getting in, all kinds of merchandise, it's been immensely, immensely huge. What the idea is that every one of the items that's within the store that you see here has been donated. And at the end, the cost of the building, of course, all those proceeds go to local charities."
The store is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. They're at 640 East St. Patrick Street.
