Not only does the One Roof Thrift Store allow us to provide clothing, furniture and household goods to families in need, it also pays our bills - our sensational store pays the operating costs of our agency - and that allows us to take your donation and put it to right back into the community, to take care of the most vulnerable among us. So, whether you're shopping with us or donating those treasures you can now live without, you're helping us build better communities.
Since 1985, the Coweta Community Food Pantry has served those who are hungry.
Clients can come every month to pick up a box filled with canned goods, breads, staples...fresh fruits and vegetables as donated - and even meat.
Partnering with the superwomen of the Newnan Junior Service League and supported by their annual Can-A-Thon, we also offer kid bags with peanut butter, jelly, cereal and snacks.
We know that everyone hits hard times.
When you've been injured on the job, or that major car repair takes next months rent...we're here with financial assistance for families in crisis.
Working on a case by case basis, One Roof pays bills for those going through a tough situation that is not of their making. The goal is always the same: Keep families together, stable, healthy and in their homes.

Our live-in House Mother's apartment also got a fresh coat of paint. NOW, we need the furnishings for this space: a full or queen bed, a sofa, a chair, a TV
We continue to wait on the City of Newnan permit. The plumber is standing by, the money's in the bank and we're ready to convert one of the 3 bathrooms to a shower room, but the City continues to hold us up. Please join in praying that the Permits office finds discernment.
What's in the works for July 15-21
If you missed last week and still want to help us Paint, you've got another chance this coming Saturday when we tackle the hallway and baths.
We also need some folks that don't mind getting their hands dirty - literally. The kitchen is grimy and needs a good scrub.
On Saturday the 27th, we will STOCK the Shelves. The Kitchen needs basic supplies - pots and potholders, plates, and pasta.
OTHER SUPPLIES NEEDED include Feminine Hygiene, diapers, personal care, first aid.
If you have questions, please write us at email@example.com

2 sofas, a comfy chair, 2TVs, a full bed, 2 computers. Please write to the email address to the left if have any of those items to give.
In 2007, a group of pastors and community leaders began discussing a place where resources could be pooled, and people could go when they were facing difficulties. One Roof was born.
Our first Executive Director was Derenda Rowe, who was already managing the Coweta Community Food Pantry. The two agencies have been working together ever since. Over the years since One Roof has continued to grow, expanding our outreach efforts. In 2014, we moved to our current location at 251 (the Thrift Store), 253 (Food Pantry) and 255 (Assistance Office) Temple Avenue in Newnan.
