Mission Statement

To support the outreach ministries of the Region XV Council of the Episcopal Church of the Diocese of Virginia, by providing gently used clothing, accessories, books, toys and furnishings at affordable prices to community members and social service agencies, using volunteers in an atmosphere of fellowship and collegiality. We take pride in providing clean quality goods given in love by our donors.


The Schoolhouse Thrift Shop is a donation-based charity shop that works with the community in a number of ways. We accept clothing vouchers from local agencies to assist families in need. We create a welcoming space for our customers and volunteers. And we donate proceeds to local organizations such as PACEM, Habitat for Humanity, and the Gertrude Mitchell House.
