Treasures. That’s what can be found in thrift stores.
From a cute fall jacket that fits just right to a record album featuring the Supremes from the 1960s to a small Christmas tree decoration that can adorn your kitchen during the holidays, many items can be snagged inexpensively at area thrift stores.
Items such as these will be for sale during College Night from 11 p.m. Thursday to 1 a.m. Friday at the Et Cetera Shop in downtown Newton.
“College Night is a way for us to connect with the students in our community who are very busy and on a tight budget,” said Leia Lawrence, Et Cetera general manager.
Students can spend money, socialize and help a good cause during the event.
Up to 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Mennonite Central Committee, Lawrence said.
“Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) U.S. shares God's love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice,” according to MCC.org. “MCC has workers or financial commitments in more than 50 countries around the world, including the U.S. and Canada. Together, MCC U.S. and MCC Canada administer this work.”
