Opinion: Madrid thrift shop looks to serve community again
On behalf of New Beginnings Clothing and Food Outreach in Madrid, I am writing to say thank you to the many individuals, organizations and merchants who have provided generous support to the Food Pantry and thrift store.
While the need for our services has increased due to the pandemic and unemployment, we have been heartened by the outpouring of monetary donations and goods from our neighbors.We especially want to recognize the Northern New York Community Foundation, Liberty Utilities, Waddington Lodge, The Order of the Eastern Star, Madrid Waddington Senior Class, and Madrid-Waddington Central School, and the Madrid Dollar General Store.
We are in a good position to continue to offer free school and lost cost high quality used clothing to our customers.
With the thrift shop opening July 1, we look forward to serving you this summer and for many years to come. Thank you for the support.
