Shop on the Corner, the thrift store at Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church in Los Alamos, will donate the proceeds from its Wednesday, Aug. 31, sale to disaster relief for the Louisiana floods and the wildfires in California.

“We want to offer some financial help for the thousands who have been evacuated and especially those who have lost their homes through flood or fire,” volunteer Mari Mahler said. “Los Alamos residents understand all too well what it means to live through a crisis. Our volunteers voted to donate the proceeds from one week to aid in this disaster relief. We hope members of the community, along with our regular patrons, will help us raise a substantial donation.”

Shop on the Corner is in the lower level of Trinity on the Hill at the corner of Canyon Road and Diamond Drive. The thrift store is open 8:30 a.m. until noon Wednesdays. However, while construction on the lower parking lot of the church is in progress, patrons are requested to park in the upper lot and follow the signs downstairs to the Old Parish Hall.

Donations may be brought to the Lower Parish Hall during volunteer sorting Mondays, during Shop hours Wednesday mornings, or placed in the bin that is next to Kelly Hall in the upper parking lot.

Shop on the Corner is staffed by volunteers. Proceeds from the Shop are given primarily to charitable organizations in Northern New Mexico. Almost everything donated to the thrift store is used or recycled. In addition to the clothing, books and household goods available for purchase at low prices, excess goods are donated to Big Brother/Big Sisters, the community center in Bernal, local Scout groups, the Los Alamos Animal Shelter, and the regional shelter for women and children. The thrift store also has a “free” corner where patrons may help themselves to items at no charge.
