Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare is grateful for a recent $30,000 donation from Friendtique, a longtime shop in downtown Wooster. The donation will help support the Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare Community Care Fund.
“When I think of time, talent and treasure, Friendtique defines this for Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare,” said Katherine Ritchie, development director for Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare. “Our community donates, shops and volunteers all to benefit the Community Care Fund.”
Located in downtown Wooster on West Liberty Street, Friendtique features vintage furniture, antique glassware and jewelry. Friendtique’s sister store, NEST, is a curated selection of some of the higher-end vintage home finds donated to Friendtique. The 5,000-square-foot showroom located at 132 N. Walnut St. features hand-picked home furnishings and décor. Both stores are staffed almost entirely by volunteers.
“We are grateful for Friendtique’s continued support of our mission that allows us to serve patients, regardless of their ability to pay,” Ritchie said. “This generous gift directly supports patients and families in their time of need.”
Donations to Friendtique are accepted during business hours, Wednesday through Friday, 10 am to 5 pm, and Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm. If you would like to stay updated on the latest news and sales at Friendtique, please click here to follow their Facebook page.
Friendtique, and its sister store, NEST, are both staffed almost entirely by volunteers. To learn more about volunteer opportunities at Friendtique, visit: https://www.friendtique.org/volunteer
