As we continue to welcome Dolores to the Treasures Thrift Store team, we conducted an interview to get to know her a little better.
Dolores found FROM as a volunteer in November 2019, after defeating cancer and losing her mother and husband earlier that year.
“This was something I needed to fill my time, and everyone was so welcoming,” she said. “This filled a void.”
Seeing and connecting with new people in the Thrift Store and at the Front Desk is part of why she loves FROM so much. “I’ve always had the gift to gab,” Dolores says.
Dolores transitioned from a volunteer to a staff member in late 2021 to help fill gaps at Treasures Thrift Store.
“I’m so excited to have this position which, along with our amazing volunteers, will give us the opportunity to provide the necessary coverage to help fill our gaps as well as help us provide the best shopping experience for our customers,” Laura, Thrift Store Manager, said.
Here are a couple fun facts about Dolores as well…
- She spends her Monday’s dog sitting her granddaughters golden retriever puppy.
- She and her husband lived on a golf course for 20 years and loved to golf together!
Dolores has already been a valuable addition to the FROM team in aiding to resolve the cashiering schedule issues.
Welcome, Dolores, we are so glad you’re here!
