The volunteer staff and the board of directors of the DEVINE AREA HEALTH AND HOSPICE RESOURCE, INC. would ONCE AGAIN like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of Devine and the surrounding area for all of their generosity in supporting our charity during this past fiscal year.
The continued increasing support has enabled us to upgrade our store building and fixtures to make our store a more pleasant venue for our shoppers and also for our hard-working volunteers.
Also we have been able to increase the amounts we are able to spend on charitable works, and, are focusing additional spending on local projects within the Devine community.
The Hospice Thrift Shop is truly a community project; and the success of the operation is a reflection of the generosity and support of the good people of this community.
We believe that good works are fulfilling, encourage harmony and build a more responsive and responsible community.
The gifts to the thrift shop by the community and the efforts of our faithful staff of volunteers, allow us to “recycle” merchandise of all kinds, re-sell it to the general public at reasonable prices and use the proceeds to the betterment of our community.
We are presenting our financial statement herein as a means of sharing the success of the operation with the community that makes all of the things that we do possible. The volunteer staff and board of directors are merely the stewards of this community enterprise.
We have now completed twenty-eight years of success and growth in serving the community and gratefully acknowledge the contributions of our volunteer worker and the community support we have received.
We invite all who have not visited our store to stop in and shop around.
We are located at 216 South Teel in beautiful downtown DEVINE!
