Yolo Hospice to close thrift store in Woodland

By
July 15, 2011 |

Yolo Hospice plans to close its Woodland thrift store Sept. 23, the agency announced Friday.

The closure is considered temporary as Yolo Hospice redirects its resources and explores options for the store, a news release said. The store’s closure will not affect Yolo Hospice’s services to those with life-limiting illness and their loved ones, the agency assured.

Yolo Hospice’s mission is to provide care and support to those with a life-limiting illness and their loved ones during this transition time in life. The thrift store was opened as a supplemental funding source to support the nonprofit’s work. Due to recent economic dynamics, the thrift store is struggling to fulfill its role, the news release said.

“This has been a difficult decision to make,” said Doug Jena, executive director of Yolo Hospice, in the release. “Temporarily closing the store will give us time to review our thrift store experience and how it might best fit with the Yolo Hospice mission moving forward.”

The store will remain open through Sept. 23. Sales and other specials will be announced throughout July and August to help sell the stock already donated by the community. The store will accept donations through July 30.

“We sincerely thank the thrift store patrons, donors and volunteers and hope they will continue to support Yolo Hospice,” Jena said. “We truly value their support and will look for it in the future.”

Yolo Hospice will continue to seek the community’s help through volunteerism and fundraising.

The Yolo Hospice team of professionals “helps people fully live the final days of their lives by focusing on the whole person, body-mind-spirit.” Yolo Hospice emphasizes comfort through pain control and sophisticated symptom relief. The first of its kind in the area, the organization has provided not-for-profit hospice care in this community since 1979.
