Bounty Galore – We Need More!

Help that is!


Yes, we are very lucky to have so many generous donors, and we are, indeed, grateful.

However, with the wonderful, much-appreciated bounty–especially of clothing–we are in desperate need of sorters to help us make the inventory available for our shelves and racks.

As you know, the proceeds of our sales help provide much needed health care in the community. But if we can’t get the products on the shelves, our generous customers will never have the option to buy them. I think you get the picture. 🙂

Can you give us a hand for a few hours once a week? Yes, now we need generous sorters.

Thank you for contacting us here: 43 Ste. Anne, in Ste. Anne de Bellevue or at novahelpwanted@gmail.com

Spring is in the Air!

And the floods are finally receding from our recently acquired “Lakefront Properties.”

But we here at the Thrift Shops for Nova West Island are looking forward to another flood!

Indeed, we’re hoping for a flood of applications in response to our great need for volunteers.Volunteers wanted April 2017

And this is such a wonderful place to volunteer that I know you won’t regret jumping into the waters. 🙂

I look forward to meeting you!

New Season — New Need for Volunteers

Good morning, dear readers. Tweet, tweet.

Yes, spring and Easter are right around the corner.

(Honestly, they are! Well, at least Easter is.) 🙂

As happens regularly here in Ste. Anne de Bellevue, once again we find ourselves a bit short staffed–we need your help. Do you know someone, or are you yourself, willing and able to offer a few hours a week to a great cause?

Specifically, we need people who can work with the public at the sales desk or in sorting and pricing goods for the shelves. Please follow the tweets below to see the details, and then consider applying for your next rewarding activity.

Yeah for Half-Price!

I do believe this speaks for itself, folks! 🙂

And, our usual advice still applies: Be there early for some hurly burly!

And, as usual, we really appreciate it when you are polite to each other and to us. 🙂

Calendar 2017

And, as usual, all proceeds go to NOVA WEST ISLAND.
