Hospice Thrift Store Supports Community in Many Ways

For years I’ve been hearing folks tell me that if you are looking for furniture and decorative accessories, the thrift store to shop at is “Treasures”, located in the Park Plaza Shopping Center in Severna Park. Evidently they must be doing right because the Board of Directors of Treasures recently announced that they donated $250,000 to Hospice of the Chesapeake to benefit patients and their families.
When it comes to quality and variety, “Treasures” does offer a lot of choices. The large storefront features gently used clothing, furniture, jewelry, household items, books and gifts. This upscale thrift shop is staffed by close to 50 volunteers who are committed to Hospice of the Chesapeake. The beauty of shopping at a store such as Treasures is that you know you are helping a good cause every time you buy something and the prices are reasonable, so you receive a good value.
Treasures was created to provide significant ongoing funds to support the mission of Hospice of the Chesapeake which is to improve the lives of those living with and affected by advanced illness and bereavement in our community.
“Our hearts and hopes are raised by the generosity of the Treasures Board of Directors and those who shop at the boutique. We are extremely grateful.” said Michael McHale, President and CEO of Hospice of the Chesapeake in a recent news release. “This ongoing support means so much to our patients not only during the holiday season but throughout the year particularly for families who struggle to care for their loved ones during advanced illness.”
If you’d like additional information or to volunteer at Treasures, contact Kathy Bourgard, Director of Volunteers, at 443-837-1549 or at kbourgard@hospicechesapeake.org.
