Serving our Community through Acts of Kindness, Integrity, and Love
Enabling members of our community, just like you, to be able to spread kindness too!
Community Kindness of Eastern Oregon operates a thrift store in downtown La Grande, to generate funds that allow us to give back to the community. Here you can buy high quality second-hand items. Each high quality second hand item is carefully selected and cleaned, then meticulously organized so it’s easy for you to shop.
Your shopping supports our community but we want to make sure that your purchases are more valuable than just merchandise. In our store you’ll also find a welcoming atmosphere filled with smiling faces and a clever bit of fun.
Come in, leave your worries at the door.
We’re so much more, than a Thrift Store!
