Do you know about the thrift shop run by the New Rochelle Humane Society? A year ago it moved to a new space… now it’s getting a new manager.
After 16 years working at Murray Avenue School in Larchmont, the well-loved “playground lady” will be taking over the shop.
“I decided after 16 years at the school to hang up my playground shoes and take the chance in retail,” says Donna Dickerson. “I cannot tell you how many times I have held back the tears when thinking of the kids that I have worked with.”
Donna has also been a volunteer at the Humane Society Shelter for several years.
Proceeds from the shop go to the New Rochelle Humane Society.
New Rochelle Humane Society Thrift Shop- 54 Centre Ave., at the corner of Huguenot Street. Wednesday – Saturday 11-4. There Municipal parking nearby.
