CMHA branches across Manitoba offer a variety of services. Our services are informed by CMHA’s Framework for Support and the recovery model as a basis for working with people with mental health illnesses and challenges.
Charlie’s Store is a Thrift store that is also the vocational rehabilitation component of our Connections Clubhouse. It is funded primarily by The Government of Manitoba and the Government of Canada’s Employment Insurance Account. This provides opportunities for part time transitional employment.
The primary goal of the store is to provide valuable work experience to employees. The secondary goal is to have a positive impact on our environment by repurposing previously loved items. The third goal, most recent, of Charlie’s Store is to provide no cost items to individuals in the community. This is provided to the community through a weekly “Free Friday Sale” where all items in the store have no cost.
We exist because of generous donors, patrons and hardworking employees in our community. Donations to Charlie’s Store sustain our work experience program which helps people to rebuild their lives in many different ways.
Donors can bring items to the store anytime during office hours. All donated items are tax deductible once the items are sold.
This is our weekly blow out sale. ALL ITEMS MUST GO!
Monetary donations are greatly appreciated but this is a day for you to “shop” for free. The only payment we expect are kind words and a smile.
Charlie’s Store is located on the 1St Floor of 43 Fox Bay, Thompson Manitoba, R8N1E9
Wednesday – Friday: 1:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
