RIC-Rack was founded in 1992 as a charity food bank and thrift shop.
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 good for our food bank. Currently we are supplying the needs
of about 350 families per month and the number is growing. There are NO
taxpayer dollars involved in this effort. All monies come from sales or
We are always in need of used furniture and appliances
as well as
clothing items, children's toys and 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!
Donations are potentially tax deductible.
Our Thrift Shop hours are 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Saturday.
