Hospice society to open a new thrift store

The revenue from this store is designated for the operating costs of the society

Campbell River will be getting a new thrift story this fall.

The Board of Directors of the Campbell River Society announced it anticipates opening the Campbell River Hospice Society Thrift Store this fall of 2014. The opening date is yet to be determined.

The revenue from this store is designated for the operating costs of the society, especially as it moves forward next year to owning and operating the new Hospice House to be built on Evergreen Road.

On Oct. 8 from 2-4 p.m. and 6-7:30 p.m. there will be two informational community meetings at the Campbell River library for any members of the public who are interested in helping to get this project off the ground.

There is a need for help from painters, electricians, carpenters and movers to initially set up the store.

They will also need volunteers to work in the store.

They will also be looking for a paid manager to run it.

An e-mail address has been set up for persons interested in helping or who may have questions: crhsthriftstore@gmail.com

Menawhile, you can gather your unwanted items and donations, such as good clean used clothing, small household appliances, clean toys etc. and donate them for this upcoming opening of the store.

Attend either session at the library for more information.
