It is spring cleaning time, but what do you do with all of the “stuff”? The perfect solution is the Second Tyme Around Thrift Shop.
We are open for donations during business hours: Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The Second Tyme Around Thrift Shop, located at 11026 Downey Ave. is the major fund-raiser for the Assistance League of Downey. We accept clothing and shoes in all sizes, small appliances, decorative items, furniture, art work, books, music, toys and tools. We cannot accept computers, computer parts, mattresses, cribs, or large appliances.
Donating your discards is a win-win. You get clean closets and garages, a tax deduction, and the good feeling that you have helped your community. All proceeds from the Thrift Shop go to support Operation School Bell (new clothing for needy children in Downey schools); H.O.M.E. (Housing of Medical Emergencies, a 10 unit apartment at Rancho Los Amigos Medical Center for families of patients); Christmas Distribution (gifts to local nursing homes); Dental Program (dental care for needy Downey children); and scholarships to local high-school students.
We welcome new members and volunteers. For more information, please call 869-0232.
