Ric-Rack History
The Ric-Rack was founded in 1992 as a charity thrift shop and food bank.  The initial effort was spearheaded by Jean Greenway and Helen Taylor along with some members of local churches and the Dawson County Woman's Club.  Located in downtown Dawsonville, the Ric-Rack serves the needs of many county residents.  Known primarily for the sale of donated merchandise in the form of clothing and shoes, Ric-Rack also has a need for furniture and appliances.  As a charity, we depend on the profit from the sale of our donated items to be able to purchase goods for our food bank.  Currently we are supplying the food needs of about 350 families per month and the number is growing.

Our Mission
The Ric-Rack mission is to Feed the Hungry of Dawson County in their time of greatest need.  We perform this mission through a cooperative relationship with other local charities that help collect goods, screen and qualify applicants, and distribute food.

Our Needs
We are always in need of used furniture and appliances, as well as clothing items and non-perishable food items.  To help control costs and ensure we can help the maximum number of individuals and families we employ only a limited part-time staff.  The rest of our personnel needs are filled by volunteers and we can always use more.
