Beacon Community Services Thrift Shops celebrate three decades

Beacon Community Services Thrift Shops celebrate 30 years of serving the Peninsula this month.

Over the last three decades, BCS has offered numerous community programs and volunteer services including Peninsula Best Babies, Girls’ Group, Youth Employment Program and visiting and assistance for people in need.

The thrift shops run by the organization have become a fixture on the Peninsula and director of thrift shops Glenys Cavers said the stores have become a place for individuals to not only shop, but also contribute to their community by volunteering and donating.

“There are so many people that benefit from the thrift shops and we definitely benefit from the community’s generosity,” Cavers said.

All proceeds from the stores go directly back into the programs they offer.

On July 21, BCS will hold a celebration featuring specials and refreshments for customers from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at their flagship store at 9775 Third St.
