While the folks over at the American Cancer Society's "Discovery Shop" in Akron are thrilled that their upcoming "Beauty & The Best" fundraiser coming up on September 28, is sold out; they also want community members to know there are still lots of great fashion finds and bargains to be found during their regular business hours, Monday through Saturday each week.
The Discovery Shop, located at 1690 West Market Street in Akron's Wallhaven neighborhood, features gently used clothing, jewelry, handbags, fine china, books, household goods, kitchen gadgets, artwork, and even some small pieces of furniture.
But, as you'll hear in our interview with volunteer Suzy Welker; it also offers hope and healing for the people who work and shop there.
Listen now, as she describes why she loves volunteering at the shop, and how the American Cancer Society uses the money they raise to help cancer patients, and their families.
