The Hope Chest in Pekin is an amazing group of folks working hard to bring awesome deals and "thrift store finds" to the community at extremely reasonable prices. 1. If you are in need of furniture and you are working with a budget, I would highly recommend that you check out the store! They have a large and constantly rotating selection of sofas, love seats, chairs, recliners, beds, tables, chests, dressers and more... What's better is you can buy what you need for what you would typically pay one of the furniture stores in town for just one month of financing something new. 2. Clothes are typically $1 - $2 per piece, so you can get an entire outfit for the price of a T-Shirt at Walmart. I can personally attest to purchasing an entire 3 piece suit with shoes, belt, and tie for under $12.00. If I would have gone to a store like Men's Warehouse, that would cost upwards of $700!! 3. They have tons of opportunities to volunteer and if you are looking for work that is a GREAT way to get hands-on experience while working hard and getting a positive reference for future employment opportunities! 4. They care. I have been at rock bottom, gone in, and the staff here has gone out of their way to help me get out of the rut. They are truly living His word and His works here. So, what are you waiting for, make like Macklemore and go thrift shopping!!

"I can not express my appreciation enough for what you do at Hope Chest. My sister in law has had an extremely hard year with a few tragedies in the family and ending up with no bed to sleep in. Her ex took the family TV out of spite and left a gaping hole (both figuratively and literally) for her children to see. You guys helped her out with both and got her sleeping in her own room again instead of in a chair. Just this simple act of kindness gave her the strength to start taking control of her life back in even the simplest of ways. Thank you so much again!"
