Friday, September 9 was United Way’s Annual Day of Caring, the largest single-day volunteering effort. More than 1,000 volunteers donate their time and effort on this special day, and this year’s event was no different.
Employees from the city of Boulder volunteered their time at the TRU Hospice Thrift Shop, located at 5565 Arapahoe Ave in Boulder. Among them was David Farnan, Library & Arts Director. As he was sorting clothing to be priced and merchandised, he came across a darling shawl from the 70s. “Check out this pattern. I think it has some pizzaz.”
While many people know about TRU’s thrift shop, there are still those who don’t. For every item donated and then sold, a piece of TRU goes home with the recipient. All proceeds from the thrift shop are reinvested in TRU hospice care in Boulder and surrounding counties. At TRU Community Care, hospice patients and their families receive peace, comfort, and the ability to experience end of life as comfortably, confidently, and fully as possible.
