We have decided to expand upon our volunteer projects and incorporate a theme into each months’ event. Our inaugural themed event is entitled “Thrift, Sift and Regift”. This month we will be sorting donations at the “thrift” store with the Durham Rescue Mission. We will also be holding a contest for all volunteers to “sift” through the thrift store items to find the best buy for under $3.00 after the volunteer shift has concluded. We will judge the purchased items during the social event and the winner will get their lunch for free at Trali! We will then collect all the purchased items (unless you really want to keep yours ) and “regift” them back to the thrift store. Of course this contest is optional but we welcome all participants!
