Thank You Super One Foods!

Many thanks to Super One Foods in Marquette for allowing our hard working New Free Store volunteers bag groceries on Saturday, February 1st.  Our collection jar for donations was quickly filled and we were most pleased to raise nearly enough funds to cover the rent for one month!  New Free Store greeters met grocery customers at the door with a short list of needed cleaning or personal hygiene products and the Super One shoppers generously donated over $200 worth of toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, laundry soap, dish soap and hand soap!  In addition, Mans, the Super One assistant manager, donated a large quantity of toilet paper and hand soap.  We are very appreciative of the generosity of our volunteers, Super One employees and the Super One shoppers!

Third Anniversary Celebration

Posted by thenewfreestore on November 4, 2019 at 8:00 PM Comments comments (0)

On October 10, 2019 over 100 people helped us celebrate three years of operation at our M28 location next to the Lion's Field in Harvey.  Most of the guests were shoppers, but we also had 18 volunteers and numerous Friends of the New Free Store financial donors.  We served hot dogs, chips, apples, veggies, donuts and apple cider to the hungry crowd from noon to 7:00 PM.  The treats were available thanks to donations from Walmart, Meijer and the Marquette Food Co-Op.  Pumpkins were also available to each shopping family thanks to a donation from Snyder's Drug Store in Harvey.

In addition to celebrating our third anniversary, we were especially pleased to distribute youth winter outerwear.  LakeState Industries allowed the use of their building space which was filled to over flowing with jackets, snowpants, boots, hats, and mittens from infant to teen sizes.  Much of this winter apparel was made possible thanks to a generous donation from the Marquette Breakfast Rotary. Many of our youth shoppers now have adequate clothing for our long UP winters!
