Hurricane damages Cancer Society Thrift Shop

The Abaco Cancer Society Thrift Shop, located next to Abaco Groceries, was severely damaged during Hurricane Sandy. The north eastern end of the building was blown in and consequently much wind and water damage was done to the wall and ceiling of the building and the entire stock was ruined.

Cancer Society volunteers spent considerable time clearing up the mess left by the hurricane.  Since the building has been rendered unusable at present, the thrift shop will remain closed until further notice. It is hoped that by the New Year the building will have undergone repairs and the thrift shop will reopen.

The Abaco Cancer Society wishes to thank Randy Key who so kindly donated the use of the building, all the people who have so generously donated items and all of our faithful customers. All monies raised from the Thrift Shop go towards assisting cancer patients with airfares to the location of their treatments and so they will endeavor to be up and running as soon as possible.

The public will be notified as soon as they are ready to receive donations again and the shop is ready to reopen.
