At Impact Thrift, we love what we do! And we love to share stories about being connected with the community. It is only through grassroots community interaction, that we are able to fulfill our mission to financially support local charities.
Here’s a special Thank-You, “SHOUT OUT” to all those who recently joined in to help spread awareness that donating has the power to positively impact lives:
Eileen Wenckus of Ambler, PA, held her 2nd annual collection drive event at her church, Calvary United Methodist. Eileen, who is a volunteer at her church and local food pantry, is all about giving back! Eileen went the extra mile and got local businesses involved. She encouraged local businesses to give special discounts to anyone who supported her event. What a great idea! Special Thanks to all the shops in Ambler for supporting Eileen’s “Ambler Donate and Save Day”: Antique Garden Cottage, Ambler Bake Shop, Ambler Golf Shop, Jackets ’n Things, Holistic Apothecary, and No Bare Walls.
Barb Laird of Chalfont Pa inspired her whole neighborhood to clean out closets and de-clutter to support her community collection drive event. Her husband and son were gracious enough to provide hot coffee and Yum Yum donuts to anyone who dropped off a donation. Barb was a little nervous about having a good turn-out…but her nervousness was in vain…she and her family nearly filled our truck, and that’s no easy feat! We had tons of fun trying out some of that work out equipment that her neighbors donated; like that ab rocket twister and manually operated treadmill…who knew a collection drive could beat going to the gym?
Frani Morrione and Anthony Stipa of Keller Williams Real Estate Blue Bell joined forces with Impact Thrift to show Plymouth Meeting that they care about families and children in need. Their collection drive event had all the neighbors talking…in a good way! Their neighbors were very appreciative to have an outlet to donate their unwanted items, where their family treasures would be truly valued and given a new home. It was great to see neighbors gathering around and reminiscing about all the fun times that had together over the years on Loretta Lane; while playfully teasing Bob (the neighbor across the way) as he trimmed his tree to ultimate perfection.
To all those who supported their events, Impact Thrift says, “Thank you for Being Green and Helping Others!”
