Kudos to volunteers

Care Closet depends on volunteers and generous donations from the community

The directors and staff of the Care Closet Thrift Store, at 574 Main St., would like to thank the volunteers and patrons for their ongoing support and generous donations. The profits from the Care Closet are equally divided between the  SOS Medical Foundation, the Auxiliary to PRH and the Penticton and District Hospice Society. Last year, we donated a total of $74,280 to these charities.

We are open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays to Saturdays, and welcome your donations of gently used clothing, books, jewelry, collectables, craft items, small furniture items, household appliances, kitchenware, linens and materials. Due to lack of space, we cannot accept large pieces of furniture, computers, large TVs and skis. Think of us when you are doing your spring cleaning.

Volunteers are always needed, so, if you have four hours a week to spare, please drop by and talk to Alison or Kola, our supervisors, and fill out a resume. We would appreciate your contribution to the staff of dedicated volunteers. Without the volunteers and generous donations from the community, we would not be able to offer our services.

Thanks again, and drop by and see our store and check out our ongoing silent auction. There is always something for everyone.


Patti Skinner, on behalf of the directors and staff of the Care Closet
