To the Editor:
In July 2009, Tidelands Community Hospice, serving Georgetown, Williamsburg, and Williamsburg counties since 1985, opened Tidelands Hospice Resale Shop in Winyah Village Shopping Center in Georgetown.
Stocked with gently used items of clothing, furniture, books and home décor items donated by the community, the Resale Shop has offered the opportunity for Tidelands Hospice to increase its outreach services in the community and to raise funds to benefit Tidelands Hospice patients and families.
It also has offered an avenue to partner with area churches and organizations to provide community support to others who are need and offered the opportunity for Tidelands to extend its bereavement support services.
Thanks to the talents and efforts of Tidelands Hospice Resale Shop volunteers and the continued support of individual donors, businesses, churches, and organizations, the Resale Shop continues to grow.
By offering a “feel good” way of recycling for donors and quality merchandise at affordable prices it continues to raise funds to benefit its patients and families; to provide additional community support for patients and for families in need within the community; to offer bereavement support and to partner with churches and communities organizations to provide community support.
Though much has been accomplished since the Resale Shop opened, we are aware that the needs of those in communities served by Tidelands Hospice continue to grow.
Our goal for Tidelands Hospice Resale Shop fifth year is to continue to grow to assist in meeting those needs. We invite you to join us during July in celebrating the Resale Shop’s fifth anniversary featuring special sales, drawings for gift certificates and special features on Tidelands Hospice Resale Shop Facebook page.
Please join us throughout the year in assisting to meet the needs of others in our community. We thank you for your continued support of Tidelands Hospice and Tidelands Hospice Resale Shop.
