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!
PX July Newsletter
Well folks, July started extremely well for the PX.
Scott got interviewed by Steve Palisi and Steve's article in the Sun News of this past Monday resulted in an incredible flow of new faces, sales and potential volunteers. Thank you Steve !!!
The PX is overflowing at this point but thankfully continued sales are resulting in some space creation... To alleviate space challenges, Kevin and Danielle have been building shelves to improve both storage and store displays. And in spite of the heat, Scott, Kevin and Jon have been picking up furniture and large appliances. Both Kevin and Jon have been our "muscles" these past few weeks and it has been wonderful to have such nice young men around.
Our "Arts & Crafts" department has been getting much praise from quilters. Thanks to Diane for organizing all the works there. Diane will be visiting us again from Canada this fall and YES Diane, we will have more "stuff" for you to sort through. And Diane, some crafters have expressed interest in maybe getting together to learn new techniques from you after they admired some of the items you created.
We have had a large donation of wood working tool from Mike Demer. Still sorting through them all, but almost there... Tania, our VP, will be visiting us at the end of the month from Massachussetts and will bring more "experienced" tool-user help with her to get the job done.
As you all can see, our PX Angels list on our "how to help" page is growing.
Thank you all for your kindness towards our Veterans, and please remember to always thank Veterans for our wonderful way of life here in the US.
