Seniors Thrift Shop move under way

community-care-for-seniors-buildingVolunteers are fixing up and stocking the new Community Care for Seniors Thrift Shop for the grand opening at 153 Main St., Picton set for Tuesday, April 1 at 10 a.m.

“We’ve been operating at 281 Main Street since 2002,” said Debbie MacDonald Moynes, Community Care’s executive director.  “It’s a good location,  but we just grew out of it. With the clothing on the second level and storage in the basement our volunteers did a lot of carrying things up and down the steps.”

Both the Boutique at 165 Main and the Thrift Shop at 281 Main closed at 4pm Saturday for the move to take place.

“Community Care has wonderful volunteers who are committed to this effort to raise funds to help seniors live at home,” said Ken Noble, treasurer for Community Care. “The funds raised at Community Care’s Thrift Shop are essential to the agency.  We are grateful to the community members who donate the inventory and the enthusiastic and tireless volunteers who work in the shop. There are no paid staff working in the Thrift Shop and 100 per cent of the money raised stays here in The County to help seniors.”

Starting April 1 the shop will be open Mondays 1-4pm and Tuesday to Saturday 10am-4pm selling used clothing for the whole family along with books, records, housewares, linens, furniture, toys, games, shoes, etc. Donations of good used items are gratefully accepted.  New volunteers are always welcome.  Donations and new volunteers are both welcome. Call 476-1555.

The Prince Edward County Community Care for Seniors Association offers services such as Meals on Wheels, transportation to medical appointments, noon-time dinners for seniors, foot care, help with forms (including Income Tax), respite for caregivers, home maintenance, rural route reassurance and telephone reassurance programs.
