Kiwanis has a new drop box

Aug 17th, 2017

The thrift store itself is an extension of the efforts of the Kiwanis Club which has a rich history of altruism. The shop is manned by three full time and two part time staff and the remaining efforts are provided by local volunteers and individuals giving community service hours, all of whom take a lot of pride in the service they provide to our town. I recently met with a few of these service oriented people at the Kiwanis thrift store including the 2017-2018 President of LaBelle Kiwanis, Sue Williams (who has been a long time member of the Kiwanis), Margaret England who is the Chair of the Thrift Store committee, and Justin Roadcap who has been working as manager of the thrift store since February of this year, and they told me all of the improvements they've been implementing and even more in store for the upcoming year. If you've been in LaBelle for any length of time you're surely familiar with the hole in the wall (literally) that was the donation drop off location for after hour drop offs at the thrift store. They have recently replaced the hole in the wall with a new drop box which will tremendously help to protect the donations left after hours. The Kiwanis Thrift Store is so very appreciative of the generosity of the people in the community for all the donations they have given and they would love to extend the invitation to give back to everyone looking to donate any items that they have outgrown.
