Northeastern Health System employees and volunteers were honored to greet Chamber and community members for a ribbon cutting, celebrating the re-opening of Remarkables Thrift Store. Remarkables, operated by the Northeastern Health System volunteers, recently underwent a floor-to-ceiling remodel.
“I am so happy with the turnout,” said Remarkables Manager, Pam Coonce. “The ladies have worked so hard getting the store ready. I think it offers such a great shopping experience now.”
Remarkables takes a variety of housewares and clothing donations. All profits are used to provide scholarships to NHS employees who are seeking to further their education, and to purchase equipment, supplies and facilities for Northeastern Health System.
“I knew even before I retired that Northeastern Health System is one of the places I wanted to volunteer,” said Sueann Freeman, Volunteer President. “I love getting up and coming into the hospital. I can’t wait to see everyone.”
Remarkables is run strictly by volunteers, and they are always looking for more help. Those interested in volunteering at Remarkables or at Northeastern Health System should contact the Hospital Gift Shop or Remarkables for an application.
