Spartanburg, S.C. (WSPA) – It’s a nonprofit ready to accept household items you no longer need. Mary and Martha Services Inc. in Spartanburg County is helping refugees and those seeking refuge from the war in Ukraine.

Marcia and Dave Trott started the nonprofit in 2017. They opened a retail store at 2270 Old Furnace Rd in 2022.
