[ These next weeks we will continue to highlight the wonderful volunteers down at Next To New thrift shop, one of Trinity’s Ministry Partners. Next To New, located in the lower-level of Trinity, has been serving the local community offering low-priced, high-quality new or slightly used clothing, household goods and kitchenware for nearly 70 years.]
I started volunteering at Next To New in the summer of 2019 and it has been an amazing experience. I found the thrift shop through my dad who works as the Sexton at Trinity! Working at Next To New (NTN) lets you interact with new people and help the people in your community. The best part about working at NTN is the people who come in. Whether they’re NTN regulars or first time shoppers, being able to help them out is always the highlight of my day and always brings a smile to my face because it makes me feel like I’m doing something to help the community. Next to New is a great place to volunteer at and I would highly recommend doing it to anyone who wants to do something to help those around them.
