The Hope Chest and Treasure Chest are offering an opportunity for local residents to shop for designer and upscale clothing, coats, shoes and gifts at a fraction of their original prices while helping support neighbors in need.
Hope Chest Thrift Boutique, Treasure Chest Gift Shop and Clothing Closet are located at the former Pine Island Elementary School.
Hope Chest and Treasure Chest proceeds go to support the Clothing Closet, a clothing bank which has distributed more than $100,000 worth of free clothing to local families in need.
Families in need are welcome to shop at the Clothing Closet for clothes, shoes and winter coats for men, women and children, all free, every Saturday and Thursday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.
“Our neighbors, local churches and organizations have been incredibly supportive with their donations as well as fall and winter clothing,” said co-director explained Sharon Scott. “We are now in desperate need of volunteers to help sort clothing and assist shoppers.”
Scott also thanked the following organizations and businesses for their donations, contributions and support:
• Vision Faith Community.
• St. Stephen’s Church of the First Martyr.
• Church of the Nazarene.
• Warwick Reformed Church.
• Good Shephard Lutheran.
• Hip and Chic.
• Knights of Columbus.
The Clothing Closet and Hope Chest are located at 20 School House Road in Pine Island.
They are open on Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for shoppers, those in need and for donation drop-offs.
