TICONDEROGA - The Thrift Shop at the First United Methodist Church in Ticonderoga is seeking warm winter coats and jackets.
"Our stock of cold winter gear, especially for men and children is seriously low," said Gayle Wells, shop manager. "Greater demands this year have already depleted our inventory and we're just beginning the cold season."
Anyone wishing to donate clean, gently used, cold weather gear is asked to stop by when the shop is open on Wednesdays and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. or call the shop at 585-2242 or the church office at 585-7995 to arrange another time to bring in donations.
The Thrift Shop, located in the lower level of the fellowship wing of the church has been in operation since 1975 and has been a favorite shopping destination for many.
Staffed by volunteers, the shop benefits the local community, individuals and other organizations with good quality clothing for the entire family.
"Prices have been found to be very low in comparison to other thrift and resale shops," Wells said. "Revenue produced covers expenses or returned to the church for continued Outreach Ministries."
The Thrift Shop at the First United Methodist Church is located at 1045 Wicker St./Route 9N in Ticonderoga, up the hill from the hospital.
