Last week in conjunction with United Way Winnipeg and Thrive Thrift Shop we had a PRICING PARTY!
And what’s a Pricing Party?… Group of volunteers to price items and ensure that products are in good condition to be sold. Volunteers will be shown how to price items such as linens, purses/luggage, trinkets and other household items.
Thrive established the thrift shop as a community project and social service: “The Thrift Shop aims to empower families and individuals by providing access to good quality clothing and household items at affordable prices, and by providing volunteer opportunities where individuals can learn employment skills and gain work experience. We work with volunteers from various programs, including disability programs, work experience programs, the Fine Options program, and volunteers doing court-mandated community service. As well as newcomers to Canada and international students!”
Also, we had the opportunity to meet Danielle Giesbrect the amazing leader of Thrive Thrift Shop. Thank you for hosting us!
We are committed to United Way and our community!
