Now you can shop online and support locals in need at the same time. The Ramona Food and Clothes Closet thrift store recently began selling their secondhand wares online.
The items on the digital sales shelf this week include a replica of a King Arthur sword, a calvary sword, a telescope, a collection of Shakespeare works, shoes and more.
Once you choose your items to buy from the online shop you can pick them up from the brick and mortar thrift store at 773 Main Street and browse the rest of their items.
The mission of the Ramona Food and Clothes Closet, Inc. is to serve as a humanitarian organization providing emergency food, clothing, and other resources to aid individuals and low income families in Ramona, Santa Ysabel, Julian, Ranchita, Borrego Springs, Warner Springs and outlying rural areas. All of the proceeds from the sales of donations go back into the community through community grants, educational scholarships, homeless programs, and emergency assistance. We also offer volunteer opportunities, disaster relief and a free medical equipment loan program. Grants are awarded to local charitable organizations dedicated to serving the needs of others in challenging situations. We operate on thrift store sales from donations from the community and individual monetary donations.
