If people are looking for a few little miracles, look no further than St. Vincent de Paul Society's new Thrift Store location at 1645 Third Ave, which holds its grand opening Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Take a step inside to see the brightly painted walls, the lovely floors, not to mention all the donated items available for sale or gifted to those in need.
"A professional floor layer and a professional painter each volunteered to do the whole job in their spare time," said Mary Kranrod, board member of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and liaison for the Thrift Store, "The man who did all the flooring just walked in off the street. Those are the little miracles that take place here."
And the volunteers, well, don't get Kranrod started on how appreciative she is for those who donate their time because that can bring on a bout [of] overwhelming gratitude that gets her choked up with emotion.
"We wouldn't know what to do without all our wonderful volunteers," she smiled. "They are our life blood. We could not be the St. Vincent de Paul Society without our volunteers."
