Thrift shops, including shops where donated items are sold to support charities. In my city, there are such stores to support a mission that helps people who are down on their luck (needing food and shelter), a Lutheran school, a Christian youth program, another Christian mission, the Salvation Army's work, and the Good Will programs to help people get employment.

I get clothing, kitchen items, shoes, and appliances at such places.

Anything that is worth while is good. We check out just about any sale if we have the time and money.

I buy a lot of books from charity shops, but would never buy a pair of shoes that someone else had worn.

We actually have a charity book shop in the village.

Surely you do not need five hands. Your two hands must be able to hold as much as five hands of us little-handed people.:D

I'm sure he carries the shopping items to their cars, or from their cars to their homes, for them. I recall they have been described as "like shovels."

My hands are not especially large.

Several weeks ago I was walking my dog when I met an old lady (very frail, stooped and walking very slowly with a stick) getting off the bus, I asked if I could carry her bags for her, she agreed and asked me if she could hold my arm. I walked her to her door which was only a few streets away, she thanked me saying it was a long time since she had been on the arm of a handsome young man :)

The other morning I was again walking the dog but had my head down against the wind and the rain when I heard this knock knock knocking, I looked up to see the same old lady banging for all she was worth on the window of the bus at the bus stop, I got the most enthusiastic smile and cheerie wave as the bus drove of. It quite made my day. :):):)
