New Vets 4 Success Thrift Store Location

We have been hard at work trying to secure a new thrift store location. As many of you know our previous location on Franklin and Curtis was shut down due to damage from a major fire at the Vietnamese Restaurant next door. We are currently in the process of securing a new and more convenient location to satisfy our customers as well as provide funding to our programs and opportunties for our military Veterans.

Fire strikes Vets 4 Success Thrift Store

An early morning fire damaged three businesses in Boise - the worst hit being a Vietnamese restaurant. Boise Fire says the fire was near Curtis and Franklin Road and reported at about 5:45 a.m.

 

Officials say Vets 4 Success Thrift Store and a tattoo shop also suffered damage. Employees at the Vets 4 Success Thrift Store say they'll need help with donation because smoke and water damaged everything. Vets 4 Success Thrift Store recently opened in Arpil of 2010 and it took them over three months to build inventory. Vets 4 Success Executive Director, Robert Gillespie had this to say, "We had just a few minutes earlier to look through the thrift store and it appears that we have suffered major damage with a complete loss of inventory."

 

Please pledge your support to help us rebuild from this tragedy by making a tax-deductible contribution.

V4S Thrift Store Grand Opening

BOISE - After months of hard work, planning and preparation Boise's newest store is finally open for business. "Being a veteran myslef, there's nothing better." Robert Gillespie said. He's the Executive Director of Vets 4 Success, a non-profit aimed at helping veterans find work after they serve.

 

It's Gillespie's new civilian mission. "Everything this country is based on is from our veterans so this is just our way of giving back to them for as much as they've done for us," he said.

 

The group held their grand opening of the Vets 4 Success Thrift Store on Saturday morning. In addition to offering employment opportunities, on-the-job training, and support, the thrift store will also employ multiple veterans full time.

 

"It just feels great for me to be able to have a job," Darald Lee Findley, a vet, said. "I'm in a transition and have a few problems and this gets me back on my feet and back in the workforce."

 

Those shopping on opening day seemed to like the concept.


"It's nice to know that we can come somewhere and the money is going to go help veterans becasue we really don't do enough for the people who serve our country," Lisa Bostaph said.

 

Gillespie said he aims to open a new store every year and do even more for veterans.

 

And for the veterans who now have a steady job thanks to donations from the community and fellow veterans, this means a lot.

 

"A sense of purpose and prode," Findley said. "It gives you a purpose. Something to really work for. Veterans banding together and helping their brothers."
