Incorporated October 16, 1997, Foothills Service Project began as an outreach of Crosslink Church (formerly the Evangelical Methodist Church) in Rutherford College, NC, to respond to the need of home repair in Burke County. We now partner with over 50 churches and groups to reach into Burke and surrounding counties. In 2006 we opened a thrift store in Valdese, NC to help fund our mission. Foothills Thrift Stores serve the local community by providing a wide range of affordable, quality merchandise. Our stores feature clothing, furniture, jewelry, books, linens, cookware, electronics, and more. New items arrive daily so make plans to visit often!
