Howard Manning of Dorcas Thrift Shop and Becca at Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club

One of my favorite things about being in Rotary involves hearing inspiring speakers and programs each week.   This past week proved to be just exciting as we heard Howard Manning from Dorcas Thrift Shop in Cary talk about their program and upcoming changes.   Howard’s presentation to our Rotary Club (Cary-Kildaire Rotary) included the history of the Dorcas Store, the connection with Christian Community in Action, the lives that have been touched through their ministry/outreach and the future plans that have been put into place through their capital campaign.  I know Howard personally through the Cary Chamber Ambassador program, so I was very excited to hear him speak.   He brought along Deidre Jersey, the Capital Campaign Coordinator for Dorcas Thrift Shop.  Deidre shared a few words and some of her personal experiences with our Club too.  One of the biggest points that I remember Howard making is that Dorcas offers a ‘hand-up, not a hand-out’ to those in our community that are in need.  They don’t just provide people with the necessary items to get by (food, clothing, etc.) but they provide them with life skills and opportunities to help get back on their feet and start their lives moving again.

If you are looking for a local (truly a LOCAL) organization to support and get involved with, I urge you to check out the Dorcas Thrift Shop.  They sure could use your help!  Thank you Howard and Deidre for sharing with our Club!  We look forward to being a part of your continued growth and future plans.
