DELPHOS — Because of increasing community need and support through the last 40 years, the Interfaith Thrift Shop has completed an expansion project and is better equipped for its next 40 years of service. The former Jauman Insurance building that sat empty next door for many years has been replaced with a facility that nearly doubles the thrift shop in size. “This is a dream three years in the making,” Social Services Coordinator Becky Strayer said. “I see big things for us and I’m so thankful to God and to the community for its support.” Store Coordinator Barb Haggard says the additional 2,738 square feet was vitally needed. “The extra space is very important because we had so many items being donated that we didn’t know what to do with, so we really needed it. Now, we have so much more space to spread out and for volunteers to work more comfortably,” she said.
