Our 2014 One-Stop Shop was a wonderful day!
On Saturday, December 6, 290 shoppers came to the One-Stop Shop to select free clothing, toys, and appliances, to enjoy some delightful music and a delicious hot lunch, and to take home a bag of groceries. 1,230 members of the shopper’s households benefitted from what the shoppers received. In all, 575 bags of clothing, 1008 toys, 273 appliances, and 250 bags of groceries were distributed and 625 hot lunches were served.
