LRR Thrift Store- A Great Place
It was not too long ago when most of the members of Logan’s Run Rescue came together at the Senior Center in downtown Murphy to have a scheduled quarterly meeting. The meeting was pretty normal but there was one idea that came up for discussion. That idea was to consider moving our Thrift Shop to a new and bigger location.
Well that idea initially was not too popular. After all the economy was suffering along with so many people in our community. Also, everyone knew it would be a ton of work and there were no guarantees that it would pay off. But even with a lot of doubt everyone came together and agreed to set up a committee to investigate possible new options and locations. About two weeks later LRR signed a lease on a new building that was three times as big as the old Thrift Store.
Since then, with a lot of work from dozens of volunteers, we have come a long way; a long way. We are bringing in more than four times the donations as we were at this time last year. Yes it is a lot more work but our volunteers are some of the most generous and hard working people you can find anywhere, and we are so grateful, so very grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you.
Like any other company, LRR has bills to pay and the Thrift Store is a big part of how we do it; along with private donations. Rent, utilities, professional services, insurance, etc… they are all a cost of doing business. As we grow so do our expenses, so please encourage all your friends and family that when they do their spring cleaning, to please keep LRR in mind for their donations. The more donations we take in, the more animals we can save.
A special thanks to Clair and Gene Head for your leadership, hard work, and your great enthusiasm. To the Thrift Store volunteers who keep the machine running, we cannot thank you enough for the hours you dedicate to the animals. What you do is so very important to our success. What you do has allowed us to be on track to break 2011 numbers. We are on track to rescue and spay/neuter more animals for 2012. GREAT JOB!
