Since 1959, The Next-To-New Shop has been a part of the Austin landscape as the only not-for-profit consignment/resale shop giving back to the community more than three million dollars in grants to local charities. An equal portion is given for the restoration and upkeep of the Historic Church. The Shop is operated by a small staff with a large number of volunteers. The Shop consigns and sells household items, women’s clothing, accessories, china, crystal, dishes and more. The Next-To-New Shop is located at 5435 Burnet Rd. and gladly accepts donations.
Congratulations to The CareBOX Program, the grant recipient for 2017. The CareBOX Program is an innovative Austin-based non-profit launched in 2014 to address a serious gap in care for cancer patients in the Central Texas region. Patients are invited to build a custom wish list of care supplies from a list of 40 items, specific to their needs, based on their diagnosis and effects of treatment. These are items not covered by insurance, or barriers prevent the patient from accessing these supplies. The Grants Committee for Community Outreach of St. David’s Church presented a check to The CareBOX Program on September 24.
