WOODBURY — The Red Barn Thrift Shop, 214 Main St. South, has started Round Up for Charity to support community programs such as Grad Night, the Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department, Community Services Council and other worthy causes.
Patrons can round out their sale by saying, “Keep the change,” and the money will be added to other donations to make a positive impact in the community.
Thrift store organizers collected more than $100 in July for a Woodlake family who lost nearly everything in a devastating June house fire.
The Red Barn was able to help with household items and clothing, but the family still needs help with extra expenses.
During August, the thrift store will collect for Companion Pet Rescue, a dog rescue group in Southbury which transports dogs and puppies from high-kill shelters in the southern U.S. and arranges for adoptions throughout Connecticut.
The Red Barn and Parsonage Thrift Shops have been serving the Woodbury community since 1992, selling gently used clothing, linens, household items, books, jewelry, collectibles and small furniture.
The shops are located at First Congregational Church of Woodbury. Business hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
