Fresh Start Extends Hours of The Daisy, Announces Monthly Store Specials
The Daisy Thrift Shop, a boutique for women that benefits Fresh Start’s mission, raises around $40,000 for the organization each year. The community is encouraged to shop at The Daisy, where proceeds support Fresh Start’s transitional shelter for women who are homeless. Fresh Start (freshstarthome.org) provides basic needs, case management, and support.
Fresh Start is excited to announce the shop has increased its hours. The Daisy is now open the first and the third Thursday of each month, from 4 to 7 p.m.; and every Friday and Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. In addition, each month The Daisy has special sales. January is Bargain Blizzard, which means everything in the store is a $1. February is total clothing inventory turnover.
In 2017, The Daisy celebrated their 10 year anniversary of offering high quality, gently used, women’s clothing, accessories, and small home decor items to discerning shoppers. Items sold come from the donations received from generous members of the community. The women who live at Fresh Start access the clothing first, and what they do not select is then sorted by the Daisy volunteers and placed in the shop. Gift certificates are provided to other local service organizations that serve women in order to make the clothing items available to more people in need.
The Daisy is operated completely by volunteers, and there is always a need for more volunteers to join the team. Please inquire in the shop (6433 Havelock Ave.) or call Audrey at (402) 475-7777. For more information about Fresh Start, visit freshstarthome.org.
