Allendale Thrift Store & Food Bank

251 Bay Street West,

Allendale, SC 29810

Director: Freeman Holmes


Mr. Freeman Holmes and Ms. Cora Berry have both served as God’s response to the needs of the community and ministries throughout Allendale, SC. With a servant’s heart, they assisted Mr. Ross, the former director of Christ Central Allendale, for many years. To this day, they still serve in the Thrift Store and food bank here in town. Mrs. Cora is said to love taking in donations and organizing the store so that the customers can find a treasure at every turn. When asked, “What do you like most about working at the store?” she simply responds, “People.” Her drive to provide hope for those in the community doesn’t stop there.  

Mr. Holmes continues to serve regardless of his physical limitations. If you ever visit the cute little thrift store in town, you will see his glowing face manning the cash register as he always does. You can bank on these missionaries to always serve the Father’s will one way or another.  Nothing can stop a passion that the Lord plants on your heart.
