In recognition of Impact Thrift Stores’ mission to positively impact local communities through its store operations, the Bucks County Board of Commissioners issued a proclamation designating January 2015, “Impact Thrift Stores Month” throughout the county. The proclamation recognizes Impact Thrift Stores as a stakeholder in the success of the region’s communities by citing Impact Thrift’s dedication and contributions to improving the lives of local residents.
The “Impact Thrift Stores Month” Proclamation encourages Bucks County residents to do something positive, by dropping off gently-used donations at one of the four store locations, to help Impact Thrift help others in need. By donating, Bucks Countians will enable Impact Thrift to financially support and work cooperatively with a variety of non-profits in Montgomery and Bucks Counties. The donated items will be either sold or responsibly recycled at Impact thrift Stores, and the net proceeds financially support 16 locally-based charities that focus on the needs of families and children.
According to Bucks County Commissioner, Diane Ellis-Marseglia, “Impact Thrift Stores is critically important to Bucks County on many levels. They provide volunteer opportunities to individuals and groups. Their stores offer high quality, affordable clothing and merchandise to residents. They help people to downsize by accepting donations of gently-used furniture and household items and provide generous financial donations to local charities.”
Beginning Saturday, January 10th, Impact Thrift will mark this important milestone with the kick-off of Donor Appreciation Days. Donor Appreciation Days will give every donor that drops off a donation through February 7th, the opportunity to be entered into a drawing to win a wide variety of prizes donated by local, community-minded businesses. The Bucks County proclamation applauds Donor Appreciation Days as Impact Thrift’s way of thanking generous donors for their support, while rallying Bucks County businesses to get involved and give back to their local community.
