The Hut: Hand Up Thrift
I made some donations to the Hand Up Thrift – or HUT store this week, and was amazed at all they had for sale.
HUT is Lafayette’s latest development in thrift stores. One of their founders, Jo Lynn Moncrief, noticed a quote on the marquee of the Emanuel Baptist Church – and it read – “The only time you look down on someone is when you are giving them a hand up.” When discussing the creation of a thrift store – the quote was the inspiration for the name. HUT is an acronym for “Hand Up Thrift.” Their vision is derived from Hand Up – which stands for – Help – Achieve – New – Direction – With – Uplifting – Partnerships.
One can even browse the store, online!
You can find the HUT at 105 Leonie in Lafayette, and call them at 337-704-4444. The managers, Yvette and Christine, are very nice and willing to help you in any way they can!
