Welcome to Surfside PX
Surfside PX is a non-profit thrift store whose mission is to help out Disabled Veterans.
All merchandise is donated by folks like you. We cannot purchase items for resale or accept items on consignment without jeopardizing our non-profit status. Because we are a non-profit organization, we are not required to charge the South Carolina / Horry County 8% sales tax!
So not only can you get quality items at great prices when you shop with us, you save again when you do not have to add a sales tax!
100% of the benefits from the proceeds of all sales are ear-marked for our chosen three Charities whose mission statement mirrors ours: Helping Disabled Veterans
Donate, Shop and Volunteer with us and Never forget to thank Veterans for our wonderful US-way of life!
The biggest news as October opens was Hurricane Matthew.
Bill, Scott and Danielle secured the PX for the onslaught by boarding up windows and doors. Now that the emergency is passed, clean up involved some mopping, glass removal and we had to call in professionals for a serious door repair.
Still planning to climb on the roof to inspect but other than that, we fared very well.
Our second biggest news for October would be our SOFA SALE. We are constantly being asked if the furniture is ever on sale, well, here it is ! Signs will come out to announce it but if you are reading this, you are the first to know. Please pass the word along!
Bill has volunteered to do a bit more remodeling, so watch for new shelvings to appear in our crafts department.
We have received a large donation of Angels (Christmas ornaments, figurines) and these are now being put out for sale. The Christmas department is still in total disarray but we are giving it the good old college try. Thank you All for your patience.
Diane, our favorite Canadian volunteer, popped in at the end of September to say hello and to prepare for her winter visits to MB. Bob and Evelyn from Connecticut, are arriving this weekend also for their winter stay, eager to help.
If you personally are thinking of doing some volunteering work, please think of us, we have loads to do and could use your help in meeting our mission of raising funds for Disabled Vets.
Thank you All for being part of Surfside PX extended family and please always remember to thank Veterans for our freedoms and wonderful US-way of life !
