"We can't stay here forever, and the people here know that," Rock said.
A total of about 70 volunteers from all four churches each spend at least two hours per month helping to operate the store and sort donated items. Rock said students from Elizabethtown-Lewis Central School have also volunteered, but she'd like to see more young people get involved.
"Our goal is to keep going," said Rock; "to keep helping the community."
The E-town Thrift Store's winter hours are Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 3-5 p.m. The store will not be accepting item donations during the months of December, January, or February.
