The Cayman Islands Humane Society’s Thrift Shop is low on stock.
The organisation is requesting that residents bring in unwanted clothing and household items.
The shop is particularly low on household items, children’s clothes and more formal dresses and accessories, said Janette Fitzgerald, retail director.
“You know how it is,” she said. “You wear a gorgeous dress to a function or two, then it is put to the back of your wardrobe. We want those clothes. Men’s, children’s and definitely women’s.”
Stock is turned around quickly at the Thrift Shop, Ms Fitzgerald said, and it has been a while since they received some good stock. It is new stock that keeps the regular customers coming back.
“The Thrift Shop is a major breadwinner for the Humane Society. The shop, along with the Book Loft, account for a big chunk of the Humane Society’s annual income. We would be lost without that income,” Ms Fitzgerald said.
The Thrift Shop will accept almost anything residents wish to donate, from clothes and shoes to electrical items and furniture. Potential donors are discouraged from leaving items outside the shelter as there have been thefts in the past.
If they are unable to go to the Humane Society during opening hours, a pick up service is offered.
To arrange a pick up, call Ms Fitzgerald at 925-0408 or Christiane at 945-5596.
