Contact Person:  (315) 789-6162

Description of Ministry:

Since its modest beginnings in 1958, Trinity Church's Linden Exchange Shop has not lost its primary focus: to provide quality clothing at lower than bargain basement prices for the less fortunate. Now it is a thriving consignment shop that serves all strata of Geneva's society and donates financially to other community ministries.

Are there Ecumenical Partners?                              No

Volunteer Roles:        Are Volunteers Needed?               Yes

Check-in, tagging, sales, accounting.

Comments:

The shop offers an opportunity to be green.  Perfectly good, even often new items can be had for a mere

percentage of their original price.  The original owner earns a commission, the new owner gets to buy

often designer goods, and the items remain out of landfills.  Moreover, Trinity itself benefits: the Linden

Exchange makes a sizable contribution to the general annual parish budget.  But that is only after

contributions are made to other not-for-profit organizations such as the Boys and Girls Club of Geneva, the Geneva Fire Company, and Police Benevolent Association.  Clothing not sold is donated to the VA and children's items are given to a local day care.  More information can be found on the Trinity Church, Geneva, website at
