Gordon Bethune and Marie Sparling are all ready to help the Christmas shoppers.
Neighbourlink Fountain has become a hub of activity and the Christmas season is no different with all kinds of things going on to make the season a little brighter for individuals in our community.
Whether you’re in need of a little help making ends meet when it comes to household or Christmas items, a shopper in search of good deals and willing to support a good cause or just looking for a warm place to have a hot bowl of soup among friends, the Fountain, located at the former Alexander Reid Public School in Mary Street in Arnprior, is the place for you.
Neighbourlink Fountain has opened a Christmas Blessings Shop where for a small donation people can shop for gifts for adults and children or children can shop for mom and dad.
There is also a great selection of Christmas decorations in the shop, many made by volunteers and visitors in the centre’s activity room.
Along with being open during the regular hours, the Christmas shop is open Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8 p.m. to allow parents and children to visit.
The Neighbourlink Fountain’s Thrift Boutique, which is open all year long, has been renovated and is a great spot for bargain shoppers to find treasures.
Landlord Waldo Hordichuk helped brighten the shop with new floors and painted walls.
Debbie Hudson, one of Neighbourlink’s directors, said the centre is growing and donations and those in need continue to pour in.
“The way we’ve been blessed, the way God blesses us – is how we bless others,” said Hudson. “It seems the more that goes out, the more that comes in.”
Neighbourlink Fountain is open Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
