Desert Foothills Library recognizes Gold Mine Thrift Shop for $10,000 donation


CAVE CREEK – The Gold Mine Thrift Shop is helping continue the community programs of the Desert Foothills Library. Over the past three years, the thrift shop has donated $10,000 to the library.

The Gold Mine Thrift Shop will be recognized with a placard on the library’s benefactor board in the $10,000-$49,000 category. The inscription on the board reads, “With gratitude, we honor these benefactors whose generosity has helped to build and maintain the library for the benefit of the whole community.”

“Desert Foothills Library greatly appreciates the Gold Mine Thrift Shop’s generous donation,” said executive director David Court. “We are excited to put their contribution toward library services and our more than 1,000 programs annually. The Library is greatly dependent upon financial support from individuals and community-minded organizations to continue its mission of providing a first-class library and life-long learning programs,” added Court.

The Gold Mine Thrift Shop is part of the Good Shepherd of the Hills Episcopal Church and its outreach programs. Lena McCoy, Gold Mine Thrift Shop store manager, and Linda Putney, Good Shepherd of the Hills outreach committee liaison, helped facilitate the contribution to the library. Other outreach programs include Foothills Food Bank, Foothills Caring Corps, Foothills Community Foundation (Holland Center), and 17 other non-profits that provide essential services to deserving individuals and families.

The Desert Foothills Library is a 501(c) 3 private library that is open to the public. The library appreciates the loyalty of its donors and volunteers that help keep the library the rich hub of community activities that it is.
