Who would think buying thrift would be helping Brunswick County schools?

The Communities in Schools Thrift Store is open for business. CIS is a national organization that aids public schools in dropout prevention. Proceeds from sales will go toward funding after school and tutoring programs, as well as scholarships for graduates in Brunswick County.

“Communities in Schools partners with public schools. When we sell things that we get donated every dime goes back to the children and that just makes it all worthwhile,” said CIS store manager Sherry Ollis.

The store is in need of donations and shoppers, if you would like to help call 910-457-3494.
