Thrift shop donations

Many thanks to those who donate items to the United Church Thrift Shop.

Many thanks to those who donate items to the United Church Thrift Shop. Clean clothing, small appliances, household goods and personal items in good condition are accepted with appreciation.  However, our staff of senior volunteers cannot manage large furniture, appliances, and old TVs.  These items need to be taken to a more appropriate place to be reused or recycled. We should also mention that hardcover books, texts, and encyclopedias must also be recycled. If you are unsure where to dispose of such items, visit or call the shop (766-3387) and we will be happy to help.  We greatly appreciate those in the community who support us through both their donations and patronage.  The Thrift Shop supports not only the church, but many local charities and organizations as well.
