Almost 60 years ago, volunteers opened the first Thrift Shop to help RLHS keep down the cost of Christian education. The accomplishment has spanned generations and the mission continues today. Since its inception, many volunteers have donated countless hours to maintaining and operating the stores. 100% of the proceeds support the school for equipment, special projects, student aid, additions, renovations, and operating expenses. Thanks to our Thrift Shops more than $4.3 million has been donated to support our school
