Newsworthy! Magic Hat Thrift Shop hits new high in fall
December 10, 2008
From the Marblehead Reporter:
Marblehead – In its latest and largest donation to Marblehead parent-teacher organizations of the town’s six schools, the Magic Hat Thrift Shop will soon award $29,000, the organization announced recently.
The “green” thrift shop was established and incorporated in 2005 and to date has contributed over $95,000 to the schools for programs such as Rebel Shakespeare, storytellers, Tanglewood Marionettes, class trips, books and many other resources schools cannot afford in their budgets.
The little shop is located under the gym in the Marblehead Veterans Middle School. It prospers due to volunteers’ hard work and generous donations of clothing and house wares from many folks in town.
If you have not yet visited the shop, you are invited to do so Wednesday-Friday, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
“Feel free to bring your donations (which are tax deductible if you itemize your taxes) and take a tour of the shop — you may find a treasure for yourself,” organizers suggested.
