Submitted by EKFH on 05-02-2015

Invermere, BC…. The wonderful thing about fundraising for hospitals and health care facilities in the East Kootenay is that it takes EKFH too many places meeting many fabulous organizations and people.

One of those amazing organizations is the Invermere Health Care Auxiliary who recently invited EKFH to come and visit the new location of their Thrift Shop and to make a presentation to their membership.

“What a wonderful opportunity to come and share in the excitement of the Invermere Auxiliary at its new location. The Auxiliary should be highly commended for taking their Thrift Store to a new level. For anyone any one that loves to shop not just for bargains but also for unique things this is a must stop in the East Kootenay,” shares EKFH Chair Brian Clifford.

The new location offers a bright and open store front right on Invermere’s main street. The IHCA Thrift Store offers something for everyone including sporting goods, clothing, housewares, linens and even those famous things none of us really need but always treasure – the coveted knick knack.

A membership of over 70 volunteers participates in the running of the store and the IHCA is well-known for its commitment to health care both at the Invermere Hospital and the East Kootenay Regional Hospital.

The new Thrift Store is located at 1231 7th Ave, Invermere open Thursday 10 am – 4 pm, Friday & Saturday 1 pm – 4 pm (winter hours), Thursday, Friday & Saturday 10 am – 4 pm (summer hours). Donations are welcomed and can be dropped off at the Thrift Store.

EKFH and IHCA working together to strengthen health initiatives in the Columbia Valley and the region.
