News

WV Caring Advance Illness Care are not only giving to patients, but the community as they host the Christmas Open House Celebration. 

WV Caring is a non-profit organization that offers hospice and palliative care. Through its efforts to prolong lives and care to patients, the resale shop provides a one of kind shopping experience at reasonable prices for customers.

“You wouldn’t believe all of the things that are here in this store, I’ve already been shopping here myself and I need to probably leave after this, but it’s a way for us to give back, engaged with their community it’s a busy day people love it.”  said Cynthia Woodyard, vice president of public affairs.

Shop manager, Debbie Markley told 12 News the shoppers are a big reason that WV Care can provide services for every patient, since every purchase goes toward the service to patients in Marion County.

” I think it’s really important because our local community is what we are here for and they support us 12 months out of the year so it’s really nice to just give back some of the time they give us.” said Markley.

With half off on all items throughout the duration of the day, Woodyard believes there’s just something special about giving back to those during Christmas time.

“We’ve had appreciation days throughout the year at different times but at Christmas  makes it even more special because everyone’s in a great mood there’s very unique things and finds that you can have and you’d be amazed that we already have low prices and to take 50% off of that is tremendous.”  said Woodyard
