FreeStore Austin, a cooperative ministry of the Capital District and mission partner of FUMC, is located at Memorial UMC Gym 6100 Berkman Drive Austin, TX, 78723.
The FreeStore is more than a place to share clothing and household goods. It’s a place where people from all walks of life have an opportunity to build relationships. The foundations of this intentionally cross-cultural, multi-racial community lie in the affirmation of God’s love for all people.
Members of FUMC are invited to donate clothes, shoes, household items, furniture, toys, and books. Donations are received Mondays and Wednesdays 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.
Stay tuned for future opportunities to serve at the FreeStore. Our monthly service day will be replaced with special FUMC events at the FreeStore throughout the year. More to come.
The FreeStore is exactly what it sounds like. The FreeStore is a store that has clothes, shoes, household items, furniture, toys and books; and it is all free. While serving or shopping at the FreeStore you experience their mission first hand: We believe that in God’s world there is enough for all people, and extend that abundance by freely giving clothing and household goods to all who come through the FreeStore doors. Through this tangible grace, we affirm the self-worth of every person by creating opportunities for all people to live in community with one another.
You quickly discover that there’s more than just stuff at the FreeStore. It’s about the connections you make with people…ordinary people like you, sharing God’s love over a cup of coffee or with a couple of bags of free clothes. Serving opportunities include sorting organizing and shelving donated items, providing hospitality, assisting shoppers, bagging items, and sharing stories over a cup of coffee. There is something for everyone – children, youth, individuals, and families.
