Last month, the board met and were asked if they could help the Parks and Recreation Dept. with the annual Easter Egg Hunt, since their funds were very limited. They were given a check for $200. to help buy items needed for this event. During this month's board meeting, it was also voted on to donate $1000 towards the Alliance Church Youth camp funds to help children be able to experience a camping trip-this camp is open to all children in Quartzsite. The check was picked up by Marika Holcomb at the Thrift Store after the meeting. The youth group at the church does a lot of fundraising to make sure that as many kids who want to go to camp get the chance to do it. The thrift store donated funds last year as well so that any child could have the chance to go. The board and volunteers would like to thank everyone who donates items to the store to be sold so they can use the funds to help other organizations and groups help others. During the past two years, they have given out $11,200 back into the community, thanks to the generosity of those who donate to the store, and to others who come into the store to buy donated items. Their summer hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you have any items you wish to donate to further their cause, please take them to the store during open hours, or call Jini Dill at 927-6039 or cell 916-7338 if after hours or if pickup needed.
