On February 20 I visited one of Brisben’s key funders from our community — the OPP Shop located in the center of King George. It is a relaxed but attention-grabbing thrift shop run by some amazing women who are committed to investing in the community in more than one way. First, they offer a wide range of donated clothes, furniture, books and other interesting merchandise to the community at a very low cost. Second, they reinvest the monies from those sales into their community’s nonprofit organizations.
I toured the shop with one of the OPP Shop proprietors, Phyllis Gibson, and thanked her for all the support they have provided to Brisben. These amazing women and their volunteers do all the hard work necessary to run a thriving shop — and Brisben and everyone in the community reaps the benefits.
Thank you OPP Shop for all you do to support Brisben and the hundreds of homeless we serve!
