It’s nice when you can help those who’ve helped you. The Hardin County community has been able to do just that over the last eight months, and it’ll see the result of that cooperative work when the new Church Women United Thrift Store opens later this week in Iowa Falls.

For years, Church Women United has taken care of the Hardin County community. The organization of volunteers runs a Thrift Store that sells donated items, collecting the quarters and dollars it makes selling that merchandise and turns them into grants that benefit thousands of people through churches, organizations, schools and other worthy causes that receive the funding. The volunteers are so dedicated, and the Thrift Store is so successful, that the organization regularly grants more than $100,000 every year.
