Volunteer Venedith Vargas gets new donations ready for sale at the Perkins County Senior Center Thrift Shoppe.
Spring cleaning takes place at Thrift Shoppe
by Shari Friedel
On Saturday, March 25 and Monday-Tuesday, March 27-28, 24 volunteers spent approximately 170 hours taking down and boxing winter clothing, and hanging up newly donated spring and summer clothing at the Perkins County Senior Center Thrift Shoppe.
The unsold items are donated to Orphan Grain Train, an organization headquartered in Julesburg, Colo., that distributes clothing to people in need. This changeover occurs twice each year—once in spring and again in the fall.
The Thrift Shoppe is open Monday, 1-4; Tues.-Friday from 9-4, and is operated entirely by volunteers. Funds generated from the sale of Thrift Shoppe items benefit the Perkins County Senior Center.
Donations of clean and slightly used clothing, purses, household goods, shoes and knick-knacks are accepted during business hours.
