Thrift Shop changes procedures

To the Times of Ti:

The Ticonderoga First United Methodist Church’s Thrift Shop has been serving our community for many years. At times, there has been such an overflow of donations brought after hours, that an after-hours donation box was purchased. It was hoped that our very generous donors would find this convenient, as we so appreciate them.

Sadly, the donation box has been vandalized a number of times. Items have been scattered on the ground outside the box, the top has been left open to expose the items to bad weather, and recently some large items intended for the Yard Sale were stolen before they could be secured inside the shop.

We request that donations not be left outside the shop. Please bring donations only when volunteers are there to accept your items. Regular business hours are Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers are also on site for sorting and cleaning from 9 a.m. to noon on Mondays and Thursdays. If you wish to stop by on sorting days, please call ahead (585-2242) to be sure a volunteer is prepared to accept your donations. Feel free to call if you have questions about items you are considering donating, or if you are interested in joining our fabulous volunteer staff.

With your cooperation, the Thrift Shop will continue to provide affordable clothing and housewares to the community. Also, our funds and efforts will be best used to assist community needs, rather than finance clean up and trash removal.

Thank you.
