GCC Thrift Shop Holiday News
The Holidays are here and the GCC Thrift Shop is having a 50% off
sale just in time for your holiday shopping. From now through
December 21 anything in the Store with a red or green barb is half
off. Come on in and fulfill your holiday shopping needs.
We also sponsor Adopt-a-Child Program. One could either adopt an
entire family and purchase gifts, toys and clothing for that family,
or adopt one child and buy gifts, toys and clothing. Many people
prefer to just buy one gift for a child and that is also an option.
If you wish to participate in this very worthwhile program, please
contact Beth Lavin @ 267-1934 or Jane Sisti @ 364-7437. If you
prefer to buy just one gift, tags indicating a specific toy or
article of clothing are available at the Thrift Shop or the
Gilmanton Elementary School. Along with this program the donations
of wrapping paper and bows are greatly appreciated.
We will be providing Christmas baskets and some of the special
things we are still collecting are peanut butter, jelly, pasta
sauce, tuna, mayonnaise, cereal, juice, pineapple, sugar, and
Please do not forget our winter hours. Wednesdays 3 – 7 pm and
Saturdays 10 am – 2 pm.
Parking is available in the Gilmanton Iron Works Church parking lot.
Volunteers are needed and welcome. Thank you to everyone who shops
at the GCC Thrift Shop. It is with your patronage that we are able
to continue to carry out our programs. HAPPY HOLIDAYS everyone, we
look forward to seeing you soon.
It is with heartfelt gratitude that the GCC Food Pantry says Thank
You to EVERYONE who made donations in any form during our recent
food drives and requests.
We had many generous contributions from Grace Capital Church,
Gilford and Gilmanton Schools, Gilmanton Gallopers 4-H Club,
Gilmanton Boy Scouts Pack 242 who participated in the “Scouting For
Food Program” and were assisted by the Cub Scouts who also collected
and walked in the Pantry Walk held on October 6, 2013, as well as
Wolcott Construction; to name a few. To the many, many unnamed
individuals, we are truly grateful – thank you. We also want to
thank our many Thrift Shop patrons whose purchases contribute to the
success of the Food Pantry. Thanks to all of you, over 30 families
enjoyed a bountiful Thanksgiving meal which they might not have, had
it not been for the generosity of one and all.
GCC Food Pantry & Thrift Shop Committee wishes you blessed and
