Catch My Thrift is located at 2406 Calder Avenue.

BEAUMONT, Texas — A Southeast Texas non-profit organization opened a store in Beaumont that is set to help them combat the "heart-breaking epidemic of child sex trafficking."

Catch My Thrift officials opened its doors on Friday. The store is the latest effort from Harvest House to fight against child sex trafficking in Southeast Texas.

The store is accepting donations, and all the money from sales will go toward the mission of Harvest House Ministry. Catch My Thrift is fully volunteer led and anyone who would like to to donate their time and serve can fill out an application online.

Harvest House officials believe events such as Friday’s grand opening allow them to also educate the public.

“This is a great way where we can give back to Harvest house, and the proceeds go towards them,” Hannah Moore, development director for Harvest House, said. “They can also come here and shop for free because they need school clothes, shoes, furniture for their houses, and things like that.”

Catch My Thrift is located at 2406 Calder Avenue. It will be open on Wednesdays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Donation are accepted every Wednesday.
