GILMANTON — The holidays are here and the Gilmanton Community Church Thrift Shop is having a 50% off sale just in time for holiday shopping.
From now through December 21 anything in the store with a red or green barb is half off. The church also sponsors an Adopt-a-Child Program. One could either adopt an entire family and purchase gifts, toys and clothing for that family, or adopt one child and buy gifts, toys and clothing. Many people prefer to just buy one gift for a child and that is also an option.
Those who wish to participate can contact Beth Lavin @ 267-1934 or Jane Sisti @ 364-7437. For those who prefer to buy just one gift, tags indicating a specific toy or article of clothing are available at the Thrift Shop or the Gilmanton Elementary School. Along with this program the donations of wrapping paper and bows are appreciated.
The Thrift Shop will be providing Christmas baskets and some of the special things still being collecting are peanut butter, jelly, pasta sauce, tuna, mayonnaise, cereal, juice, pineapple, sugar, and coffee.
Winter hours are Wednesdays 3–7 p.m. and Saturdays 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Parking is available in the Gilmanton Iron Works Church parking lot. Volunteers are needed and welcome.
