ELLIS — The mission of Ellis Thrift Ltd. is to recycle, reuse and rebuild Ellis, according to secretary/treasurer Vera Haver.
The Ellis Nutrition Center is the most recent beneficiary of that mission.
“Seven years after establishing the thrift shop, we are so excited to be able to start giving funds to rebuild our community,” Haver said.
A $275 matching grant was presented recently to the nutrition center board members.
The grant money will be used for new tables, according to board member Karen Day.
“The current tables in the nutrition center are too heavy for the members to handle and in bad shape,” she said.
“Thank you to all who donate, purchase and volunteer to make this community self-help program a success,” Day added.
The next grant round is set for July 31. Application information is available at the Ellis Thrift Shop.
