To the Editor:

The Calhoun Station board of directors met January 12 and awarded funding in the amount of $5,000 to both Meals on Wheels and Programs for Exceptional People.

Since it was founded in 1989, Calhoun Station Thrift Store has donated more than $1.6 million to help improve social services for Bluffton residents. 

Calhoun Station Thrift Store is supported solely by donations and volunteers.

We would also like to recognize Jack Castro, who will be leaving Bluffton. He has given 13 years of dedication and service to Calhoun Station. Jack will be deeply missed not just by Calhoun Station Thrift Store but many other charitable organizations he volunteers for.

The store is open on Wednesday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. We continue to seek volunteers, who are needed two days a week during business hours. 

Donations are accepted on Wednesday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. New volunteers can sign up during those hours.

The store is located at 77 Pritchard St. in Bluffton.

Linda Collins

President, Calhoun Station Board of Directors
