A longtime thrift store that provides transitional housing and case management services to more than 300 families a year, was vandalized this week.

Overnight Thursday, a window was broken at The Save the Family Thrift Store, 444 N. Country Club Drive, causing an estimated $300 in damage, according to Andrea Sok, store spokeswoman.

Nothing appeared to be stolen from the nine-year-old business that operates solely on donations and volunteers.

“The damage to the store might seem minimal, but funding is down, so any out-of-pocket costs hurt,” she said. “We also worry how an incident like this might affect our volunteers. We want to make sure they feel safe.”
