Hi Tor needs your help
From Lauire Sharkey Hi Tor Volunteer Coordinator:
The Tappan Zee Thrift Shop, located at 454 Piermont Avenue, Piermont is a huge supporter of Hi Tor and a number of other non-profits. We are grateful that our shelter is one of their chosen charities. In consideration of being the recipient of the generous amount donated from proceeds of sales, we need volunteers to man the shop for 6 hours per week OR 72 hours per quarter. That doesn’t mean that one person has to donate all those hours or the 6 hours per week. A few hours here and there would be of so much help in helping us reach our quota of those 72 hours per quarter. Volunteer with a friend. Can you help? Please contact Laurie at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to volunteer. We will see about setting up a sign-up genius so we can keep track of the hours you can volunteer. Also, please remember, your purchases, donations to the shop and volunteer hours help the homeless animals of our shelter. Please visit and support both the pets and Tappan Zee Thrift Shop. Thank You.
