Join Executive Director, DeLeesa Meashintubby, Springfield Mayor, Christine Lundberg, Dari Mart owner Pat Straube and VIM staff and board members as they celebrate this new venture.
Come inside, take a look around and enjoy “thrifting” to support Volunteers In Medicine.
Proceeds from the thrift store benefit the organizations mission in providing free quality healthcare to working adults in our community who are underserved or uninsured.
A note from Deleesa:
“The reason VIM decided to take this step is the economics of KEEPING OUR CLINIC OPEN AND VIABLE. More and more, nonprofits are being challenged to find ways to be more self-supporting. Our Sisters’ Closet is an ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE, revenue-raising project that will help us stabilize our bottom line. This project has been a team effort. I would like to thank the Dari Mart family for their support and generosity in making this project possible. I also want to thank VIM’s Board of Directors for being willing to not only take a chance on this endeavor, but for their help cleaning, painting and securing items for the clinic. VIM volunteers have spent untold hours organizing and setting up the store. Without these donations of time and energy, and your support, none of this would be possible. It certainly does take a village!”
