What We Do

Gift & Thrift Stores

Our sorted, clean, and organized Gift & Thrift stores are another way CSS brings Hope in the Good Life while elevating the dignity of the person. Individuals who cannot afford items in our stores can apply to receive items for free through our Emergency Services programs in each of our outreach offices. The sales of store goods and recycled items pay for our staff and overhead costs. All of the merchandise in our stores has been donated by our generous supporters across Southern Nebraska.
