(ATLANTIC) Circles4Success members are hosting two events this week to raise money for the Samaritan Shop in Atlantic.
Melissa Stark, with Circles4Success, says on Thursday, Circles4Success members will be bussing tables for donations at Pizza Ranch from 5 to 8 pm. 10% of all sales will benefit the Samaritan Shop to help with winter utilities and winterizing the garage. And then on Saturday, Circles4Success is hosting Mexican Train Dominoes for all ages at the Heritage House rec room at 1:30 pm for a free will donation.
“Circles4Sucess is a group that likes to give back to the community and so we saw that this was a need and it’s something that can help anybody in the community, over at the Samaritan shop, so we really welcome anyone that would like to come out to our events and make a donation to help out,” said Stark.
Renee Watson, with Circles4Success, says the Samaritan Shop is located at 612 W. 6th Street in Atlantic in Edith Petty’s garage.
“She started it as a ministry about a year and a half ago and it is a free shop, so anything that is in there anyone is welcome to take for free,” explained Watson. “She is always accepting good, clean, usable items for donations and also cash, she has a tip jar there, and that just helps go to pay for the utilities for the garage and we’re going to do some winterizing too. Also, labor is welcome, so if you just want to stop by and fold some clothes or help move some things around, anytime she’s open she is always up for good help.”
The Samaritan Shop is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons during the winter.
