Second Chance Emporium
841 South Reynolds Street
La Grange, TX 78945
Second Chance Emporium provides financial support for local human services organizations with the profits generated by the resale (thrift) store, which is run by a coalition of eight local churches representing different denominations.
Begun in 1996, Second Chance serves all of Fayette County. We moved into our new building in January 2020. The majority of the work is performed by unpaid volunteers from the member churches, as well as the community at large. These churches receive no monies or in-kind donations from Second Chance for the service hours their parishioners donate. Second Chance accepts donations of items in good, working, usable condition from the public and resells them at very low prices in order to benefit the underprivileged members of our community. Profits from the sale of these items are distributed to local charities which have applied for funding and been selected by the Funds Committee of the Second Chance Emporium Board of Directors.
