The resale market is booming in Lufkin just like the rest of the country. Just recently a new Goodwill store opened and soon Lufkin will have a resale shop that is focused solely on children.

The one thing that every kid-focused resale shop has in common is a fun name. This one is no different.

Lufkin's only local children's resale shop will be called 'Just Kiddin' Around'. Just like the new Goodwill store in Lufkin, this one has a mission.

All Proceeds Go To The East Texas Cancer Alliance Of Hope 

This will be a kids-only resale shop that will benefit local people in our area that are struggling with cancer. East Texas Cancer Alliance of Hope is a way to offer real hope for cancer patients.

They provide groceries, plus help pay for prescriptions, utilities, and rent for these patients that are no longer able to work.   If you know someone that might qualify for help, check out their website.

The organization's director, Ashley Berry is a local Lufkin cancer survivor. The orgainzation that she created is on a mission to providing tangible hope to cancer patients.

If you would like to contribute to the racks of childrens clothes take a look in your kids' closet. They are in need of donations now ahead of their grand opening. For more details take a look at their facebook page.
