Opened in 2005, Grateful Hearts Thrift Store sells new and used clothing, vintage items, electronics and furniture. Proceeds of the sale go to support the needy in Los Alamitos community. The store's mission is to "minister to the physical needs of those who are hurting and broken-hearted." It is affiliated with the nearby Cottonwood Church. The selection at this location is typical of any other thrift store. In addition to accepting clothing and furniture donations, Grateful Hearts also welcomes monetary contributions and volunteers.
