Corners of Your Field

What is Corners of Your Field?

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

How does Corners of Your Field help my church?

Corners of Your Field gives your church a practical way to meet the Biblical mandate of caring for those in need and gives you a plan to do so.  Corners of Your Field puts resources, beginning with gift cards to Palmer Thrift Stores, in the hands of every partner church. Many partners use the gift cards as a part of their existing benevolence ministries.  We recognize you know the needs of your community better than we do and want to equip you to make a difference.

How does the church partnership work?

It’s simple.

  1. Individuals or families donate their gently used items to Palmer Thrift Stores.
  2. The Palmer Thrift Store employee serving them will ask the name of your church.
  3. Quarterly, your church will receive gift cards to Palmer Thrift Stores that can be given to anyone who comes to your church in need.
  4. And, donors are still able to take advantage of the tax-deduction with every gift made to Palmer Thrift Stores.

How do I get my church involved?

The quickest way is to contact the Palmer Thrift Store representative listed below.  You’ll be able to ask any other questions you may have and every donation made on behalf of your church will be credited to you.

‘When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the LORD your God.’ Leviticus 23:22
