Letter to the Editor: Thrift store targeted

Over the past 10 years, the Thrift Shop has been the target of vandalism and theft.

Dear Editor,

Over the past 10 years, the Thrift Shop has been the target of vandalism and theft.

Last year volunteers donated over 10,000 hours by sorting and selling items that raise money to fund equipment and items that will improve the quality of patient care in the valley. These services provided will benefit everyone at some time.

But it will cost hundreds of dollars to repair the damage.

So now, this money which has been dedicated to providing worthwhile equipment will have to be redirected to repair damage inflicted to the back of our store.

If people are so desperate and needy for our things, please see Social Welfare — they will give you a voucher and we would be happy to provide items you need.

There is no reason for this vandalism and theft to occur.

We need the public’s help to put a stop to this. It has been reported to the RCMP, and we have your pictures on camera!

Jo Anne Myers

Secretary, Invermere Health Care Auxiliary
