Noah’s Ark offers kids gently-used school clothing


Noah’s Ark Thrift Store is getting into the back-to-school spirit with an event Saturday, Aug. 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to help families get growing children properly outfitted before school begins – Aug. 26 for many area districts.

Most everything costs between $2-$3, like jeans and tops, but there will also be a $1 rack, she noted.

The sale also includes sports gear, like baseball pants, basketball shoes and soccer and baseball cleats.

“We have quite a good assortment of sports shoes,” Lindley said.

Noah’s Ark also has backpacks and insulated lunchboxes/lunchsacks and other back-to-school items to equip any age student.

Lindley said that twice weekly, she is posting photos of some of the items for sale on the Noah’s Ark Thrift Store Facebook page.
