Shop or drop at the Beehive

SNAP participating organization U Care Inc. operates two thrift stores in Clinton and Newton Grove, NC.  All proceeds from the shops benefit the local domestic violence shelter and 24-hour crisis hotline.

Both locations of The Beehive thrift store are now sporting after-hours drop off boxes for donor convenience.  The stores accept all clean, used clothing and household materials.  If you choose to drop off after hours, just leave your name and mailing address with your contribution and the store will send you a tax-deductible receipt.
