From The Heart is more than a name; it is a purpose as well.
“It has been my vision to partner with local non-profit organizations, through consigning donated items in their name, so that I may be a continuous source of funds for their good works and youth mission projects” said Katherine Scheese, From The Heart Owner.
Since opening our doors in the Fall of 2014, FTH has contributed over $24,000 to charities from the sale of donated items in the store. In addition, we have partnered with Hannah's Hope Ministries - our annual Fashion Show Fundraising event provided over $3,000 in needed funds plus raised awareness for this worthy cause. In addition, over 300 filled purses for women in need were provided under our annual holiday "Purse Project".

Making A Difference
Annual Purse Project
From The Heart Consignors & Customers donate filled handbags to bless women in need during the holidays.
Over 400 handbags have been distributed to date through various local charities including Berks Counseling Dress for Success, Family Promise Grace House, Hannah's Hope Ministries, Safe Berks, Ashes to Beauty Ministries and the Salvation Army
Hannah's Hope Ministries Fashion Show
From The Heart's first annual fashion show raised funds and awareness for Hannah's Hope Ministries. Some Mom's & daughthers who benefit from the charities good works served as models and a special day was made all the more special by those who took the time to come out, enjoy the day, learn a little about fashion and support Hannah's Hope
FTH Consignors have the option of donating unsold items which are then provided to either Opp Shop/ Dress for Success program, Career Closet Albright College or the Spring Valley Church of God inner-city boutique ministry.
"Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” - Colossians 3:12
Our Supported Charities
In addition to individuals consigning items, donations of items are always accepted so From the Heart Consignment can raise funds for Aidan's Avengers, Allegheny Evangelical Lutheran Church, Community Evangelical Church and First Presbyterian Church, Reading, Hannah's Hope Ministries and the Sacred Heart Parish / St. Vincent De Paul Society. We have also supported individuals raising funds for mission trips. Also, with consignors permission, unsold items are donated to the Spring Valley Church of God for their monthly Free Boutique and to the Berks Counseling Dress For Success Program.
Understanding the devastating effects of childhood cancer, Aidan’s Avengers strive to raise awareness and funding for research programs that focus on childhood brain cancers and to provide financial peace of mind for families affected by childhood brain cancer.
