The Compassion Society of Halton wishes to offer a heartfelt “Thank-You” to Aldershot Lions Club for its valued assistance during the relocation of The Society to new premises.
Members of the Lions Club worked with The Society to ensure a successful move from the old location to a newer and larger store.
The Compassion Society of Halton is most grateful for the help provided.
Volunteers are always required to work in the store sorting clothes, receiving food, helping clients, etc.
Also, we are looking to add to and strengthen our Board of Directors. If you think you can help please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org (Past management, volunteer, fundraising and/or event planning experience is an asset for Board positions)
Compassion Society clients, donors, staff, and volunteers have seen a doubling of store space with the move in June to the three end units in the same row where the Society was previously located. This new location was occupied previously by a carpet store and is immediately south of the Society’s old store.
The Compassion Society took possession of this new space, at the beginning of June, and moved in after completion of necessary alterations. Some of the additional space will be used to provide an area for children while parents are shopping, a private area for interviewing clients, and a room for volunteers.
Additional space will also make it possible to receive donations of toys (in good condition), books, and some kitchen items (other than electrical items, pots, and pans). Donors will be able to leave these donations and clothing items at the side door at the end of the unit rather than bringing them in the front door. This will alleviate some of the congestion around the main entrance to the store.
