About Hand Up Thrift:
Are you doing your annual
spring cleaning? Looking for a place to make it count? Want to
support the national “Go Green” campaign? This is your
opportunity to support a great mission and recycle.
HUT is Lafayette’s best kept secret in thrift stores. One of our founders, Jo Lynn
Moncrief, noticed a quote on the marquee of the Emanuel Baptist
Church – and it read – “The only time you look down on someone
is when you are giving them a hand up.” When discussing the
creation of a thrift store – the quote was the inspiration for
the name. HUT is an acronym for “Hand Up Thrift.” Their vision
is derived from Hand Up – which stands for – Help – Achieve –
New – Direction – With – Uplifting – Partnerships.
Our partnership with local
non-profits is not a byproduct of their business; it’s how we do
business. Three of those partnerships include the Affiliated Blind
of Louisiana, Family Promise of Acadiana, and TRAIL.
Affiliated Blind of
Louisiana, Family Promise of Acadiana, and TRAIL are only three of the
agencies who will benefit from the HUT.
We are located behind
Lafayette Music off of Johnston Street at 105 Leonie. We have a
large facility and plenty of parking.
Our customers will always
have plenty to choose from including – furniture, toys,
electronics, clothing, household treasures, bath accessories,
books, shoes, purses and so much more!
HUT is committed to
responsible recycling; any merchandise not suitable for sale is
sold to other community companies. The furniture will be
recycled through CUPS – Community United in Prayer and Services.
Our principles of giving
back and providing opportunities are values we stand on. So
please help us support these missions – we know you have a
choice. We thank you for choosing Hand Up Thrift.
