As Surrey’s Seva Thrift Store prepares to celebrate its second anniversary, it does with 30,000 reasons to say thank you to its community of shoppers, volunteers and donors.
This month, Seva will donate $20,000 to the Surrey Memorial Hospital’s children’s campaign. Paired with the $10,000 donated after its first year, that’s $30,000 benefiting local children and families!
The appropriately named Seva – it means “selfless service” – offers an eclectic mix of donated new and nearly new clothing, South Asian ethnic wear, jewellery, housewares, and seasonal items like recreation gear and holiday decorations. Just about everything you might hope to find.
In fact, it’s a thrift shop unlike any other.
Time to celebrate!
Join Seva’s anniversary celebrations from 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 23, with Seva board members and volunteers, representatives from the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation and other community members. Browse the great deals in store, enjoy a few refreshments and more, all at 9430 Scott Rd.
