Second Chance Thrift Store in Pacific Grove opened in September 2012. We are so grateful for the generosity of people and the support to continue the mission of restoring lives.
We are very excited to have the opportunity to serve the community by providing two stores where people can purchase, used items at bargain prices and at the same time support The Bridge Restoration Ministry’s program of restoring people’s lives back to God, family, work, and community.
Our name reflects our belief in the gospel of Jesus Christ and His message of restoration and hope. We believe people sometimes need a second chance at life. The gospel record gives us examples of people who came to Jesus who were no longer considered valuable by society due to sin, infirmity, or illness. Rather than cast them out, the Lord touched their lives, healed them and restored them to their families. The Bridge Restoration Ministry seeks to continue this work today.
Similarly, Second Chance Thrift Store takes donated merchandise and restores it to usefulness in the hands of its new owner.
- We are a Thrift Store carrying a wide variety of used items including clothes, furniture, books, DVD’s, VHS tapes, music CD’s, cookware, toys, collectibles, and various household items.
- Our staff is made up of volunteers, employees, and Bridge residents.
- We carry a wide selection of men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, furniture, tv’s, toys, dinnerware, cookware, books and much more.
What is the Bridge Restoration Ministry?
The Bridge recognizes that substance abuse problems can impact your life both at home and at work. When you or someone you know faces these challenges in life—it’s nice to know there’s a place to turn. The Bridge is a 12-month residential program designed to help men and women with these problems—men and women who have made the decision to change the way they live.
