GORDON NEWS: Twice Blessed gives back in many ways

(Continued)



The shop carries men’s, women’s and children’s clothes, decorating items (pictures, vases, lamps, floral arrangements, etc.), housewares, small appliances, some furniture, books, audio and video equipment, hardware items, purses, jewelry, curtains, bed spreads, etc.  Occasionally small gardening equipment and yard tools are available.

The store participates in the Texas Work Force (Experience Works). Nellene Talley, of Lone Camp, has been working under this program. She has done an excellent job of sorting, displaying, straightening and organizing the merchandise. Numerous community service volunteers have contributed to helping through the Palo Pinto Adult Supervision Office.

Nancy Hall, chairperson of the emergency aid committee, screens requests for assistance, which might be in the form of helping to pay utility bills, car repairs, medical prescriptions, general medical expenses and emergency travel. 

At the end of each season, surplus clothing is gathered and taken to Brownwood, where the Baptist Misson Board takes it to Mexico.

The store is open on Wednesday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Friday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
