Thrift shop thriving for Revive Ministries, donations needed

HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) It has been just a little over a year since Revive Ministries of Hastings opened their Revive Sports Thrift Shop located within the antique mall on South Burlington Avenue.

Director Dan Rutt says they had their best month of sales in March of this year, exactly one year after they opened.

"We're thankful for the community just grabbing on to this and helping," Rutt said. "But, we're in need of donations."

Donations of used sporting goods equipment of all types can be brought to the store. Rutt says camping and fishing equipment is particularly popular and tends to go fast.

In addition, Rutt is reminding everyone that Give Hastings Day is May 9 this year. It's a day focused on people donating to a number of good causes in the community and is administered by the Hastings Community Foundation.

Rutt is hopeful people will use the opportunity to support Revive Ministries.
