Rainbow Connection Thrift Store

For more than 25 years, the Rainbow Connection Thrift Store, located at 1516 Buffalo Rd., has been serving the Erie community by providing gently-used, low-cost clothing and household items.  But that is only the beginning.

When you donate an item or make a purchase, you are supporting the mission of EUMA.  All sale proceeds benefit our ministry programs serving the homeless community and those-in-need.

The Rainbow Connection is a ministry, too.  Through their voucher assistance program, folks who are being helped through our agency, as well as other shelters and social service organizations throughout Erie, can access clothing and other necessities free-of-charge.  Last year, the Rainbow Connection distributed more than $47,000 worth of coats, socks, dishes, bedding and more to people who couldn't afford these items.

So stop in to the Rainbow Connection - shop their unique and ever-changing selection of merchandise - donate your gently-used items - and know that you are making a difference.
