I feel in love with this store on a recent trip to see my sister Jasmin in Texas. 100% percent of the proceed from this thrift store benefits U.S. service members, wounded warriors, special operation members, veterans, an their families. SGT. Ritter an his staff have such a passion for service members that they offer support through a food pantry, baby supplies, and clothing for free or little to nothing.

Some of notable mentions include the organization raising over $40,000 for a wounded soldier who lost his legs during an IED attack in Afghanistan. With the money raised, the organization was able to modify the soldier's home and adapt his vehicle. For the holidays, the organization supported over 900 military families with supplies an also helped a single military mom catch up on her rent. The center offers free coupon classes, the food pantry, and other fundraisers and give always to support the troops.

If your are in the Killen/ Fort Hood area, I encourage you to visit this store and feel free to volunteer.
