The Winchester Lion’s have now met all the requirements in order to open their new Thrift Store at 541 St Lawrence Street! They received the occupancy permit on December 23, but the most recent lockdown will keep the doors closed until about January 23. Many people are anxiously waiting to be able to donate items to the new store. Currently, they are unable to accept donations, although they are working hard to try to develop a donation receiving procedure, and hope to have it up and running shortly! They ask to please refrain from leaving donations in front of the building. It is not safe, and donations become unusable with weather exposure. Please, when it is time to donate, only donate clean items. The Thrift Store does not have the capacity to wash or dry items. If there is anyone in the community in urgent need of clothing, you can reach the Winchester Lions through their Facebook page, and they will be there to help.
