The Bargain Bin Exceeds Its Goals

Many of the volunteers came out to celebrate the Bargain Bin payoff.

It’s been just over two years since the Bargain Bin groundbreaking and Paulding. They have reached their goals and they are excited.

The original donation goal was $250,000 for the cost of the building they were constructing to house all of the clothes and goods that they were selling to earn money for Paulding County Hospital.

With lots of prayer, volunteer help and donations this all came to pass and much quicker than they ever expected and on this date of August 3 they were able to mark the day.

The Bargain Bin has approximately 150 customers a week. With being only open on Fridays and Saturdays this is very good. On Monday and Wednesdays volunteers come to help sort, process, and clean all the new goods that arrive.

If you would like to become a volunteer at this great organization you’re more than welcome. Just stop on in and ask and they will be glad to help you find a good job right there.

Kevin McDonald with McDonalds’ and Associates built the structure starting back in 2015. Rhonda Smalley now says that they are looking to add on a storage facility. Even though this new building is much larger there is much more coming in and going out, and they need more space. The small storage facility will take care of this problem. There is also a concrete patio area that they would like to cover with an overhang for a porch. This is an upcoming project that will make it a nice area to relax in front. And one last thing they would like to have is a new counter. If you would like to contribute, you may contact the Paulding County Area Foundation to give a donation.

There are so many ways that you can help if you choose. All the volunteers do such a wonderful job of helping out and congratulations to all.

We love to see all that is happening in Paulding and with the Bargain Bin. Great job!
