This month we don’t just have one Volunteer to show kudos upon, we have two! Ed & Vivian Foster are our newest Thrift Store volunteers. They actually came to us thanks to Vivian who was a member. Once they retired following twenty-five years of retail experience, Vivian told Ed that they should help us out at the Thrift Store. That was all it took. They first started out by bringing in store shelves and then by arranging the stock. Now they work 1-2 days a week moving the items from our center to your house. Ed was originally from Fort Huron, Michigan, and came west to Long Beach thanks to the navy. It was fate that the two met at the Central City Mall (the Carousel mall to you youngsters) where they both worked, each taking turns as the other’s supervisor at various stores. They worked so well together they ended up with six kids, fifteen grandkids, and eight great-grandkids! Thanks to Ed & Vivian for arranging our store and for arranging your time to help us out.

Featured Activity

A new program has been created through Amazon, the online e-commerce business. AmazonSmile is a program where Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organizations selected by it's customers.

We were recently informed by Amazon that several of their customers had selected to support the Highland District Council On Aging (i.e. the Highland Senior Center). To support the center, instead of going to www.amazon.com, shop at AmazonSmile (http://smile.amazon.com) where you can buy the exact same things you would at their normal site, and the same prices. We did check it out and it's legit. So continue to shop at Amazon and help out your Senior Center at the same time.
