Thanks from Cash for Clothes

End of an Era! Our final Cash For Clothes sale in October was a great success with a net $7,400 donation to Coastal Opportunities! We thank our sponsors, the Allen Agency and Mid-Coast Energy for their generous support as sponsors, our incredible volunteers and the multitudes of shoppers who came out and shopped all weekend!

It is impossible to list all the contributors to our sale for the last 45 years and equally impossible to adequately thank all those who have given us their time and talents. Coastal Opportunities’ staff would be at the top of the list of those deserving thanks for all the help and support they have given us. Our Cash For Clothes steering committee would be right at the top as well. Their hours (days!) of work , individual strengths and team spirits were key to each successful sale. Also a big thanks to the American Legion in Camden for their many years of support (& patience!).

It won’t be difficult to give up worrying about who will cover shifts or filling in for shifts that are short handed or whether we have enough inventory. It will however be difficult to see and talk with Coastal Opportunities’ clients and describe to them what our ‘new’ project will be. We don’t know yet what that will be…what do you see as a successful fund raiser in the community? What would be new, different and fun? We would appreciate your ideas as to what may work, even comments on what won’t work! Give me a call at 594-5429 with thoughts and ideas or maybe just to share a memory!

I know I speak for more than just myself when I say Cash for Clothes has shared so much with so many in a multitude of ways. To all of you, thank you!!!
