There have been six decades of families volunteering at this store, with more than $11 million donated since 1958.
“Dallas is a very philanthropic city, and we appreciate our loyal customers who come to buy gifts, for themselves or others, and make a difference,” said Becky Odlozil, current president of St. Michael’s Woman’s Exchange. “It’s a place where the profits we make are given back to the wider community by serving the most vulnerable.”
The shop selects nonprofit organizations that address a wide variety of community needs, including substance abuse, human trafficking, domestic violence, homelessness, and other topics.
Several Preston Hollow neighbors are recipients of these grants, including Rainbow Days, Inc., Project Transformation, and Catch Up & Read.
Now that the grants have been awarded, the volunteers are starting over, selling items and raising funds for next year’s group of beneficiaries.
