Ann Davis opens its own thrift store

The Ann Davis Transition Society (ADTS) recognizes and thanks all of its wonderful volunteers—past, present and future.

ADTS is always grateful for all the hours volunteers freely give to their society—it is truly appreciated and makes a positive difference.

ADTS is continually looking for new volunteers for a variety of positions and will soon be able to offer its own “retail therapy” to those interested in becoming part of the volunteer team.

ADTS will be opening its own thrift store at the end of April. Located downtown on Yale Road, between Chilies and Bravo, ADTS would love to have people offer their time to come in and help out at the store.  This can be your opportunity to get involved with fashion and accessories while providing a service to your community.

ADTS will be providing good quality items at the lowest possible price and providing excellent value for your dollar. It is an opportunity to feel good shopping when you know that your dollars help support their society and local programs. The thrift store will also be the new location that will house the free donation component of ADTS. We welcome donations of gently used clothing, accessories, small appliances and household items.

ADTS is continually striving to make a difference, to try to give back to the community as much as possible and it is only through volunteer help that they can do this. Last year alone, ADTS served more than 2,600 family members of which 600 were children.

Ann Davis Transition Society provides education, prevention and support services to those affected by abuse or violence.
