The Outreach Committee of the First Congregational Church of Camden and Heavenly Threads Thrift Shop recently donated more than $10,000 to 10 local organizations.

Betsy Perry, from Outreach, presented checks to a representative of each group on July 6.

Heavenly Threads Thrift Shop is a fantastic store and outreach program of the First Congregational Church of Camden. Since 1994 it has sold gently used treasures donated by area communities. There is an ever-changing selection of quality items. Last year the group donated more than $21,000 to local non-profit organizations.

It is located at 57 Elm St., beside the Congregational Church. The hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday.
