Months after Hurricane Irene swept through Morristown, the Market Street Mission Thrift Store–one of a number of operations in town affected–is back open.
Here is a press release, from Market Street Mission's Phil Parsells:
The wrath of Hurricane Irene created havoc throughout our community late last August. The devastating impact of the storm affected the lives of many families and businesses. One of the casualties was our thrift store, located at 25 George St. in Morristown. The thrift store was flooded and completely knocked out of operation for over 3 months. During that time it was amazing to see how our community showed great concern for us. People called, prayed, sent money and volunteered their time. After much hard work, we are proud to announce that we are open. Trucks are back on the road for pickup and clothing, furniture, cars and bric-a-brac are once again available for sale.
The store is beautiful. We could not have done this without the strong support from our caring community, and for this, on behalf of the Market Street Mission, I convey my deepest and most sincere appreciation. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
