For those of you who are new around here, allow us to introduce ourselves... American Rescue Workers Thrift Store, Canton is one of 10 thrift stores operated by American Rescue Workers. American Rescue Workers (ARW) is a faith based nonprofit operating out of Williamsport, PA. Our mission is to help fight and prevent hunger and homelessness in our community. ARW operates three homeless shelters and a Social Services Center. Revenue generated from the resale of donated items in our thrift store allows us to continue this mission. Without the thrift stores, none of what we do for our community would be possible. Through our mission we fight hunger and homelessness through our homeless shelters. We have two shelters that operate out of 643 Elmira Street, Williamsport. These shelters house strictly men who have minor or significant barriers to self sufficiency and are living through a homeless crisis. Our third shelter, Saving Grace, is operated at 324 Campbell Street, Williamsport and is a family emergency shelter, where men, women and children reside while living through a homeless crisis. Each individual who is living with us is served 3 meals a day, 365 days a year. Each year we provide food and shelter to over 1,100 individuals in our community. We prevent hunger and homelessness through our Social Services Center. At the SSC we distribute over $250,000 each year in emergency assistance. These funds help keep families in their home by helping them to pay an eviction notice, a delinquent utility bill, or assist them through some other type of emergency that could lead them to homelessness. At the SSC we also distribute a 3-day emergency supply of groceries to 750 families EACH MONTH. This emergency supply helps them to never go hungry. American Rescue Workers would like to thank our loyal supporters and our new ones, because without you, we would not be able to continue our mission to fight and prevent hunger and homelessness in our community.

All revenue generated through all 10 American Rescue Workers Thrift Stores supports programs offered through American Rescue Workers that help fight and prevent hunger and homelessness throughout Central Pennsylvania.
