Grateful for help

To the Editor:

The Elizabethtown Thrift Shop, located upstairs at the Deer’s Head Restaurant, benefits the community in many ways. It provides good, quality items to reuse and recycle. It helps us motivate ourselves to clean out our closets on occasion. The shop provides a source of volunteerism for many in our communities and also supports our four local churches: The United Congregational Church, The Church of the Good Shepherd, St. Elizabeth’s, and The First Congregational Church of Lewis. All our profits got to these churches monthly. ACAP, WIC and the Food Shelf also support our efforts. Once in a while someone not involved with the Thrift Shop steps forward and makes a donation from the heart. We have needed another stair railing as many of our volunteers and customers are elderly. Contractor Todd Stevens was asked to give us a bid to install a railing. Not only did Todd donate all the materials but labor as well to put up the new railing. A big thank you and crew of Stevens Construction. They exemplify what it means to give from the heart. Again Thank You to all our volunteers and customers. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
