Thrift Shop & Tuesday Morning Outreach
Tuesday Morning Outreach
Every Tuesday morning (with a few holiday exceptions) between the hours of 9 AM and 11:30 AM, we join with friends and neighbours of James Bay to share a Continental Breakfast, non perishable food items, conversations, concerns, hopes, dreams and a joyful dose of fun.
Every time a new person follows the ramp (and the laughter ) to the James Bay United Reception Office our lives are enriched beyond measure.
Please come ....bring a friend.... for a long visit or a quick pause in a busy day.
All are welcomed, anticipated and appreciated.
It's all about the people.
Located in the heart of the neighbourhood, with the James Bay Community Project a few doors away, South Park Elementary School up the block, New Horizons Centre around the corner and shops, homes and apartments just steps from our door, the Thrift Shop is a gathering place where friends meet and visit while they find great items at very reasonable prices. Family news, significant conversations, chats about the weather, the thrill of finding just the right thing, shared bewilderment at the usefulness or beauty of an interesting item - all part of the buzz of the place. Customers and volunteers come to care about each other and look forward to their weekly connections.
