Mountain Family Center (MFC) has stepped out on Main Street in Granby with a new venture- a thrift store.

In an effort to raise more money for its programs and services that assist low to moderate income households with rent, mortgage, utilities and groceries, MFC hopes that this non-profit thrift store will generate the necessary funds to help with the growth of its organization. Over the last three years, MFC has seen dramatic increases. Between its two food pantries, visits have jumped from 2,851 to 4,927. Health and wellness programs (CATCH, Exploring Foods Together, Cooking Matters, Totes and Eat, Play, Grow) for children have surged by more than 75 percent.

“Each year MFC spends between $45,000 and $50,000 on groceries alone. Having a reliable revenue stream will ensure the future success of growing programs and services,” said Helen Sedlar, Executive Director.

“The Grand County community has stood behind us for many years and the outpouring of support for this project has been phenomenal. As an organization that serves others, we can only make a difference with the help of our community, and we are so very fortunate that we have such a giving one.”
