Dedication Ceremony Recap
Lake Wales Care Center had a much anticipated celebration on Monday, August 14, 2017. The community gathered, cookies were eaten and smiles were glowing as Care Center staff took a deep breath of fresh air and cut the ribbon right down the middle during our Store Dedication Ceremony. Many supporters attended the celebration, including Mayor Eugene Fultz and his wife, Jan Fultz. Mayor Fultz encouraged Lake Wales Care Center to continue pursuing their mission of helping others and showed his excitement for the many more people to be helped in the future.
The Thrift Store opened just a few weeks ago at its new location. The simple move down the street and the wide open spaces ended up tripling sales in the very first day! The store is projected to hit about $500,000 in sales in 2017. The average sale is $7.36 and over 60,000 customers supported Care Center and its programs by shopping at the Thrift Store this past year.
Thank you to those who came out to the event and to those who continue to support Care Center in various ways. It’s because of you that we are able to do incredible things and will continue to make an impact in our community for many years to come.
