Christian Giving

Each year the Green Door Thrift Shop supports non-profit, 501(c)(3) organizations dedicated to charitable and humanitarian efforts using proceeds from its sales. Organizations must have a mission and vision consistent with that of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church and The Episcopal Church.

Grant applications will be available beginning Monday July 17, with applications due by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 31. In addition to 501(c)(3) status and a mission consistent with that of St. Luke’s Church and The Episcopal Church, grants will be evaluated based on programs or projects that:

  • are well-defined, specific and measurable
  • address a significant need or improve the quality of life
  • benefit EITHER a large population OR a small population in a major way
  • are transformative
  • increase the capacity of those served to help themselves

The Green Door began on April 13, 1953. The Women’s Auxiliary of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church opened a thrift shop at 1813 Nacogdoches Rd. in a rented space with 10 volunteers. Most of the items were donated, and sales on the very first day were $500! Profits the first year were $3,000 and rose to $5,000 the next year. $500 is a decent day’s sales even by 2012 standards. $500 in 1953 would be worth $4,028.67 in 2010 dollars. That would be a very busy day at the Green Door! This initial money was used to construct a building for the Green Door. The present building was completed in 1958 at 1030 Nacogdoches Rd., and was expanded in 1965 to its current size.

The Green Door provides clothing and housewares to our community at a low cost. All donated items that cannot be sold are given to other organizations with a broader clientele & these organizations are able sell most of the items that we cannot sell. Some of our consignors depend on the income from their sales at the Green Door. And finally, our volunteers benefit from the mutual support we give one another at the Green Door.
