PossAbilities Thrift Boutique
Opened in 2004, Abilities ‘Branching Out’ Food Pantry and Thrift Boutique has been meeting the employment and volunteer needs of individuals with different abilities by providing job training at the Anderson Street facility. The Thrift Boutique also meets the needs of the community by offering affordable household items and gently used clothing. The Pantry serves more than 200 families each month (adults/children)
The pantry offers an opportunity for service recipients to give back to the community. Individuals get to experience a retail setting with sorting, tagging, pricing, and labeling the items for sale. They also help with packing the products at NORWESCAP Food Bank, loading and unloading vans, inventory, cleaning storage area and packaging.
The food pantry is open Tuesday and Thursday, hours are 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM. The pantry distributes a
variety of food: frozen meats, juices, paper products, baked goods, and vegetables both canned and fresh, when in season. The thrift shop is open Monday thru Friday 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Donations to Abilities Thrift Boutique of gently used items are greatly appreciated. All proceeds benefit Abilities day program services.
