FORT MYERS, Fla. - Harmony Thrift Store, in South Fort Myers, is a non-profit shop founded to generate funding for transitional housing for men and women recovering from addiction.
The store, like many others across Southwest Florida, is looking for extra help this summer, a time of year when numbers of volunteers and resources typically drop off.
Co-founders Tommy Koch and Debbie Ficarelli need volunteers to help with bookkeeping and general care of the store as well as any businesses or people interested in partnering with their cause.
All proceeds from sales in the shop go directly to funding the transitional housing. According to Koch and Ficarelli, none of the shop's workers, including themselves, take a paycheck.
During summer months, Harmony is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The shop contains home goods and decorations, furniture, clothing, plus and baby items.
This week, anyone who mentions WINK News during checkout will receive 50% off.
Harmony Thrift Store is located at 16283 S Tamaimi Trail, Fort Myers. For more information, call (239) 288-5537 or visit the website.
