Assistance League of Tucson
April 21, 2011
One of the reasons Assistance League of Tucson is able to provide clothing for children and fund our other programs is the income earned in our thrift shop. However, the thrift shop is more to some of our customers than a place to find great merchandise at low prices. It is a place to spend time; to be in a place where they have caring volunteers to talk to. We listen and encourage or sometimes cry with them. A trip to our shop is a part of their daily lives. We know many by name and greet every customer that walks in our doors. They also know the good that we do with the money that they spend there and that makes them feel very good about shopping with us.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the pleasure we bring to so many who enter the thrift shop doors.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
like the Tucson community to be more aware of all that Assistance League does for those in need.
Volunteer & I am one of those fortunate volunteer members who work in the Thrift Shop.
