[ The next few weeks will highlight the wonderful volunteers down at Next To New thrift shop, one of Trinity’s 2019 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.]
My involvement with Next To New began many years ago when Mary Wabeke asked me if I’d be interested in volunteering. They were rather short on volunteers, so I agreed to help. Five managers later and I’m still there. I stay because I enjoy the work and the people! Next To New is a greatly needed outreach program. It not only gives dignity to its customers by maintaining a pleasant and affordable shopping experience but also by providing a friendly atmosphere in which to shop.
