Corners of Your Field

Corners of Your Field is a partnership opportunity between local churches and Palmer Home for Children Thrift Stores. Corners Of Your Field encourages our partner churches to be intentional about selecting their gently used household items for donation to our thrift stores. The stores then return a portion of the value of these items in the form of gift cards to your church to help those directly in your care.
