In celebration of National Thrift Store Shopping Day on Saturday, Aug. 17, the Open Door Mission in Owego will be having special all-day sales including mystery discounts, a buy-one-get-one-free sale on all books, and a buy-one-get-one-free sale on lamps! In honor of this day, which coincides with their 50th anniversary, they’re inviting Tioga County to celebrate with them.
From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., they are offering hot dogs, soda, and water for 50 cents each and having a raffle. To get a ticket for the raffle, all you have to do is donate a non-perishable food item. You can even get 10 extra tickets by supporting the backpack giveaway with a $5 dollar donation.
It’s a win-win! You may win a prize, but either way you’re helping your neighbors and having a fun time.
