Kids night at the Thrift Store

The Presho Thrift Store & More will hold a Kids Night at the store Friday, Dec. 18 from 4:00 to 7:00 pm to allow children the opportunity to shop for family members.
Youth age 12 and under are invited to bring a shopping list of the people they want to shop for and Thrift Store volunteers will assist them in finding appropriate gifts to fill their shopping list and wrap the gifts.
The Thrift Store board of directors will give each kid a $10 gift certificate to use towards purchasing their gifts.
“We want to make this a fun, learning experience for kids,” said the newly elected board president Lois Comp.  
 “We want to give them the opportunity to experience the joy of shopping for family members but also to learn that sometimes it’s necessary to budget your money,” said Comp.
Comp stated that parents or guardians may drop their children off at the store to shop and pick them up after they complete their purchases and the gifts are wrapped.
Volunteers are needed to help the children shop and wrap gifts.
Donations of gently used items including clothes, toys, household items, decorations and now furniture are always welcomed and appreciated. 
According to Comp, with the additional space the store now has they can accept larger items,  and have better displays.
 The store will be closed December 24 and 25 but open for a business on Saturday, December 26th.

Community stocks local food pantry

Posted by Lucy

Lyman County communities have generously donated to the Food Pantry at the Presho Thrift Store this fall said newly elected Thrift Store board president Lois Comp.

"The food pantry is well stocked for the winter," said Comp. "Donations have been very good."

Recently the Boy Scouts, Lyman Student Council, West River Flowers and Kennebec’s Holiday Craft Show have made sizable donations to the pantry. In addition, the Thrift Store has grocery store certificates for perishable items like milk, eggs and meat.

The Thrift Store bought fresh fruit that local 4-H clubs will package up for cheer baskets that will be delivered to elderly residents next weekend.

"It’s our mission to help the youth and elderly of our communities," said Comp.

Sometimes finding those in need can be difficult in small towns. The Thrift Store board appreciates the assistance they receive from the Ministerial Association and Lyman School staff in identifying families in need.

The pantry is open to the public during the Thrift Store’s regular business hours, Thursday and Friday 10 am to 5 pm and Saturday 10 am to 2 pm.

Residents of Lyman County are reminded that food is available for those in need of assistance.

The Thrift Store works with members of the Lyman Ministerial Association to provide holiday meals to families.
