Atlantic General Hospital held a ribbon cutting for the expanded Auxiliary Thrift Shop, 10542 Old Ocean City Blvd., Berlin, Maryland, on June 28.
Members of the Auxiliary and supporters of Atlantic General Hospital gathered for remarks from AGH President and CEO Michael Franklin, Vice President of Public Relations and Auxiliary liaison Toni Keiser and Auxiliary Thrift Shop manager Jane Wolnik.
The thrift shop, which is managed and staffed by volunteers, has nearly tripled in size with the expansion. In addition to raising more than $190,000 a year for Atlantic General Hospital, the thrift shop donates clothing to those in need through Worcester Gold and Worcester County Department of Social Services and to inpatients who are without sufficient clothing at discharge.
The thrift shop accepts donations at the door, including clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, household items, sports equipment, books and linens. Items are sold with profits going to the hospital to support patient care services, new technology and education to benefit the community.
The thrift shop is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
