Letter: Newark Neighbours' Thrift Store has reopened
Letter to the editor

Dear editor:

We are so happy to welcome back our volunteers and customers to our Thrift Store.

We have had a very successful first week with folks dropping off their donations and customers anxious to shop again.

You may recall we had to close the Thrift Store last November because of the pandemic.

However, because we are very fortunate to have the support of this generous community, it allowed us to not only continue serving our food clients, but to also accept and serve a significant number of additional individuals and families who suddenly found themselves in need.

We wish to acknowledge the following recent supporters and extend our sincere gratitude to them: St. David’s Lion Club, St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Scottish Loft, NOTL Legion, Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre, Community Garden Project managed by Communities in Bloom, NOTL Rotary Club and the generosity of the community in the recent porch pick up food drive.

The many individuals who have made monetary and/or food donations

Our Thrift Shop is now open Monday to Friday and on Sundays from 9:30 am until 2 p.m.

We are accepting donations of seasonal clothing and small household items. We appreciate you dropping off your donations during our open hours in the bins provided outside.

Please check our website at for up-to-date information.

We are looking forward to celebrating our 50th year with you soon.
