Local Boy Organizes Neighbourhood Merchandise Collections for Abaco Cancer Society

Brayden Dam

Brayden Dam, a ten year old student at Agape Christian School, was looking for a community service to participate in. So he contacted neighbours and friends, asking them for donations for the Abaco Cancer Society.

He wrote letters to people he knew and approximately one month ago, after enrolling the help of his mother and sister, he managed to collect enough merchandise for a car-full of donations that he delivered to the Abaco Cancer Society.

A month ago he was contacted to pick up even more stuff and this time it was a truck-load that arrived at the Cancer Society. This was followed by more deliveries that the family helped unload into the shop, as Brayden has now become a liaison for donation deliveries.

Now on Saturday morning, all three family members assist with selling, receiving, sorting and unloading clothes and other donations.

The local branch of the Cancer Society helps Abaconians with cancer related expenses, such as travel, medical or both. Clothes, books, tools, small appliances and more await new owners who will need them.

You can visit the Abaco Cancer Society Thrift Shop Saturdays from 10:00am – 1:00pm.
