CONROE, TX – The Leadership Montgomery County (LMC) Class of 2019 is pleased to announce its class project benefiting Angel Reach.

One component of the organization’s outreach includes the management of a furniture and clothing resale center, currently known as Shared Treasures. Over the next six months, the LMC class will work with Angel Reach to enhance the furniture center by improving many aspects of its operations, including designing a system to handle the influx of furniture and household item donations as well as a program to train and employ the youth they serve. Partnering with Angel Reach, the LMC Class of 2019 project will utilize financial and in-kind donations to provide minor renovations to the facility, to develop a marketing plan to better reach the surrounding community, to procure inventory, sales, and human resources software, and to develop a training program for the youth who will be working in the resale center. The long-term goal of the project is to provide a foundation for the furniture center to thrive as a business as well as an opportunity for job training for the youth who work there.

Angel Reach and LMC will host a Grand Opening in April of 2019 to re-introduce the store to the community. More details for the Grand Opening will follow in the coming months.
