Introducing Prosper Resale, Inc

- by Rachel Lam (President, Prosper Resale, Inc.)

Prosper, TX (MetroCatholic) - Introducing Prosper Resale, Inc., a nonprofit resale store benefiting North Texas Catholic crisis pregnancy centers; The White Rose Women’s Center, Birth Choice as well as other local Catholic charities.

By receiving donations of clothing, small household items, toys, books, décor, etc. and re-selling to the community, we raise much needed funds for the life saving work of these prolife organizations.

As the Respect Life ministry leader at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Frisco for several years, I’ve been immersed in many prolife activities… The beauty of witnessing babies lives being saved is truly is a blessing, and offering even the smallest contribution to that effort is a miraculous gift. Unfortunately, there are also the women who suffer the after-effects of abortion who are in need of the healing ministries provided by prolife outreach as well.

This is why I’ve started Prosper Resale, Inc. We are here to offer aid to the organizations that are doing that life saving, heart healing prolife work.

Prosper Resale is accepting donations during our ‘Stock the Store’ party, Saturday, August 28th from 8 – 2 pm. The projected store opening will be Labor Day Weekend. We are located at 117 West Broadway, Suite B
Prosper, TX 75078.

Come on up the road a piece and check out our little shoppe! For more information e-mail me at [email protected], or visit our website; www.prosperresale.com.

Thanks and God Bless You!
