“As a not-for-profit, we are very excited to be stepping into this new area of business to support our mission and ministry and are looking forward to forming new and strong bonds with the surrounding community,” said Dawn Boren, director of resident life at Shell Point. “At Shell Point, residents are very happy to have this new option for donating excess items that can be used to benefit others.”
The store will carry a wide array of items for all shoppers, including furniture, home décor, household goods, CDs, books, games, adult and children’s clothing, jewelry, and more. Plus, this store will also offer items that are not typically found in resell stores such as building supplies, construction materials, appliances, and fixtures. When an individual or an organization donates items to the store, they will receive a tax deductible receipt. Proceeds from the store will be used to help provide necessary services to meet the needs of seniors in our area.
