Op Shop Update

This Friday, 24th February, the VisionWest Op Shop at 97 Glendale Road, will be closing.  That means we are no longer accepting any donations but do come in and grab a bargain: The Op Shop will be having a Closing Down Sale throughout this week with discounts up to 70% off.  All proceeds will go to financially support the VisionWest Food Bank.

Lisa Woolley, CEO of VisionWest, passed on a message regarding the Op Shop:

As many of you will be aware, VisionWest is going through a period of incredible growth. We feel incredibly humbled to be able to journey with so many people who are in need in our community and we see God’s blessing in the number of wonderful people joining the team at VisionWest to help bring about Transformed Lives and Healthy Communities.

Whenever you go through a growth period, it’s important to evaluate where we are focusing our resources, how we continue to fit everyone on campus, and were we need to continue to provide support for the community. As part of this process, we worked with the Board, the executive leadership team and the service managers. Through this review process, we have made the difficult decision to close our Op Shop, effective this coming Friday. This was a hard decision, both because of the dedicated staff and volunteers affected, but also because the Op Shop has been a part of VisionWest for many years.

For all the hours of dedication and support our Op Shop team have provided I wanted to personally and on behalf of the Trust to say thank you.

Thank you for your continued support as we seek to serve our community together.
