Spark match! Stephen Penner (right) will be helping Pulford Community Service’s thrift store (Andy and David shown here) strategize on how to do more effective marketing.
Pulford Community Living Services is a local organization that works with adults with disabilities. In addition to operating residences, they offer a variety of supports, programming and other opportunities to their community. One of these is The Store, a social enterprise thrift store in the Windsor Park area that has been open for almost two years. In addition to the fact that spending your money there helps support Pulford’s programming, it’s a place where the folks they work with can gain work experience and make a great contribution to the community.
