The community is warmly invited to the ribbon cutting of Hospice Savannah’s Thrift Shoppe at 331 US Highway 80 East in Pooler’s Fortune Plaza at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 6.
Mayor Lamb, the Pooler Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau and Hospice Savannah board members will officially welcome shoppers to the upscale store that opened in mid April. Proceeds from the Shoppe provide a self-sustaining revenue stream to fund the many extra services and programs offered to both community members and hospice patients and their families by not-for-profit Hospice Savannah, Inc.
The Byrd’s Cookie Cruiser will be parked out front distributing cookies; there will be lemonade, raffles and door prizes; and shoppers can spin a “Wheel of Fortune” for all-day shopping discounts. The thrift Shoppe has been stocked with many new kitchen items generously donated from the former Twelve Oaks store, Kitchen Outfitters, and with lots of gently used furniture, clothing and household wares donated by hospice supporters. All donations are tax-deductible.
The Hospice Savannah Thrift Shoppe is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. More information can be found at www.HospiceSavannah.org/Thrift or by calling the Hospice Savannah Foundation at 912.629.1055.
