We are pleased to announce that Bergen County CASA has become a participating organization with the Community Thrift Shop in Midland Park. The Community Thrift Shop is a small, non-profit, bustling consignment store that accepts a wide range of donated items. Donors are asked to name an organization they wish to benefit from the sale of their items, and each item is tagged with that organization’s identifying number. When the item is sold, a percentage of the sale price goes to the identified organization.
Bergen County CASA’s role is to promote the shop among friends and family as a great place to help their usable clothing, small accessory furnishings, chairs, tables, household items, books, toys, etc. find a new home, as well as encourage shoppers to visit the store. If you visit, you may even find brand new overstocked items from local retail shops! Of course, it is important that each person donating items specifically name Bergen County CASA as the benefitting organization. In addition to promoting donations, the shop requires a commitment from CASA to provide volunteers who will work in the store for a few hours, during ONLY one week per year.
Our advocate, Kathy Olsen, will be coordinating the schedule for volunteers to work in the shop as soon as the week has been assigned. The days and hours are Tuesday through Friday, two volunteers from 10 am to noon, and two volunteers from 1 pm to 3 pm. If you would like to be notified when the dates are assigned, and are perhaps available to help, please email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our registry number is 33. (Mark your boxes/bags).
This is a wonderful fundraising opportunity for us, especially since it seems that COVID has sparked quite a lot of closet/basement/garage clean-outs. Please help us spread the word to encourage lots of people to donate and shop at this neighborhood, non-profit store which benefits both customers and charities.
Donors are asked to name an organization they wish to benefit from the sale of their items, and each item is tagged with that organization’s identifying number. Bergen County CASA is number 33!!! Please give them our name and tell them number 33 when you donate.
