Women's Crisis Center of NEA opens Second Home Shoppe

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Region 8 residents have an opportunity to find some good deals on gently used items and help victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

The Women's Crisis Center of Northeast Arkansas opened Second Home Shoppe at 906 Southwest Drive two weeks ago.

When people donate and buy gently used clothing, jewelry, and home accessories, the proceeds support the Crisis Center.

"Our clients will still get the merchandise for free when they come to the shelter or they need clothes for their child or clothes for themselves there's still no expense, but we're selling our extras to the community to help raise funds," said Board President Jennifer Smith.

"There's a great need for the store. The Women's Crisis Center provides services to victims in a six county area in Northeast Arkansas so we rely on the proceeds to help keep our services going," said volunteer Sherri Cothern.

The store is open Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
