This is just one corner of the local Care and Share Thrift Store.
You can buy just about anything here, at reasonable prices.
About 70 volunteers turn mountains of good quality donations into help for people locally and in war-torn or disaster-stricken countries overseas.
Volunteers recycle used clothing into colourful quilts and blankets. The blankets are sent overseas for disaster relief while the quilts usually are sold at a spring quilt sale.
Each year, between $170,000 to $190,000 is sent to the Mennonite Central Committee, which operates the Care & Share and 16 other thrift stores in Ontario. That’s the net amount earned after rent, hydro and other expenses are paid.
A great place to buy needles and yarn for knitting projects.
