Bargains Thrift Shop doubles in size at new location

Bargains Thrift Shop, newly located in Legacy Plaza

 

Assistance League of Tulsa and its signature program, Operation School Bell, have a new home.

Last May, ALT moved to a recently remodeled three-story building at 5350 E. 31st St., doubling its space from 10,000 to 20,000 square feet. The building is in Legacy Plaza, a project of the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, which purchased the former Dollar Thrifty complex and donated space to various nonprofits.

The reason for ALT’s new digs? "We were on top of each other" at the former location, says volunteer Linda Atwater.

ALT’s Bargains Thrift Shop is on the ground level. All sales help fund ALT’s philanthropic programs, including Operation School Bell. Some volunteers busily sort, repair, rehang or display gently used clothing and household items in the thrift store, while others help in the office throughout the week.

Headquartered downstairs, Operation School Bell provides new clothing and shoes for children. This past school year, 26,000 students from 14 Tulsa-area districts received essential items through the program.
