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 of $1250 from the Marquette Breakfast Rotary. Ninety-seven shoppers representing almost 300 family members were able to fill their need for warm winter clothing!
