The people of Boulder County have spoken. TRU Hospice Thrift Shop, located at 5565 Arapahoe Ave. in Boulder, won Best Recycled Goods/Thrift Shop in the Boulder County Gold People’s Choice Awards this year.
Members from the Board of Directors—along with interim CEO Pat Mehnert and Vice President of Philanthropy Annette Mainland—greeted customers on Sunday, September 25 with free donuts and coffee.
The thrift shop exists to support the mission of TRU Community Care: to ensure that everyone in our community can live with advanced illness as comfortably, confidently, and fully as possible.
“Its sole purpose is to support what we do in our hospice program. We bring them peace, and space, and the ability to say goodbye in the way they want to.” said Annette Mainland.
For each item purchased at the thrift shop in Boulder proceeds are filtered directly back to TRU Community Care. Thanks to our loyal customers, the work of TRU is extending to the local community with each treasure that leaves our store.
We are grateful to our customers for their continued support, and we thank you for voting us Best Recycled Goods/Thrift Shop in Boulder!
