letter to the editor - Church of St. Paul Thrift Shop supports many good causes

To the editor;

Those of us at the Church of St. Paul’s Thrift Shop want to thank the people of Barriere for their continued support by bringing your used clothing and household goods to us for resale, and for shopping there when you have need of items we might be able to provide.

With the money we raise, we are able to make donations to our church, the church in Clearwater, the local Food Bank, many relief causes in Barriere, Kamloops and Vancouver, as well as emergency funds for places across Canada where there is fire or flood damage.

We make donations to the outreach work of the three denominations that make up our church.

We hope, as you are doing your spring cleaning, that you will think of us and bring in your children’s outgrown clothing and your wardrobe items that you no longer find useful. We especially appreciate receiving those items on days when we are open, and ones that are clean and in good conditions.

We give to Big Brothers, so if you regularly give to them, think of us as the local place to bring those items that are no longer of use to you.

Remember that we are open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from about 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. We are located behind the Church of St. Paul on Barriere Town Road. We have a second location beside the accountant’s office on Barriere Town Road, which is open from Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Again, we wish to thank the people of Barriere and surrounding areas for your generous support.

From the volunteers at the Church of St. Paul’s Thrift Shop

Barriere, B.C.
