Shepherd’s Care Foundation is thrilled to announce that, effective July 1, 2020, ownership of Treats n’ Treasures Thrift Store will be transferred to Adeara Recovery Centre, and will be called ’More Than a Fad Thrift Store’.
Shepherd’s Care Foundation is a faith-based, not-for-profit organization providing quality care and accommodations to more than 1,800 seniors throughout Edmonton and Barrhead. Treats n’ Treasures , located at 6924-68 Avenue in Edmonton, is a social enterprise owned and operated by Shepherd’s Care Foundation with all proceeds going to support the lives of seniors living in Shepherd’s Care Foundation.
Unrelated to the events of COVID-19, Shepherd’s Care Foundation undertook this transition as the best direction for the success of the Thrift Store.
"I am full of excitement and hopeful thinking of the possibilities and new opportunities the Thrift Store will have under the ownership of Adeara Recovery Centre," says Shawn Terlson, President and CEO of Shepherd’s Care Foundation. "As we make these transitions, I encourage you to continue to supporting the Thrift Store in its new initiatives."
Adeara Recovery Centre is a not-for-profit faith based organization, formerly known as the Edmonton Dream Centre. Since 1998, Adeara has worked fearlessly to transform the lives of women struggling with addicition, poverty, trauma, and abuse.
"Adeara would like to thank Shepherd’s Care Foundation for the exciting opportunity to expand our community support and provide new opportunities for our residents!" says Lori Patrick, Executive Director of Adeara. " Treats n’ Treasures was created to support Shepherd’s Care residents and their community, and now they are giving Adeara the opportunity to do the same."
The dedicated customers of Treats n’ Treasures will naturally see some changes when they visit the store, but what won’t change is the desire to help support the vulnerable people. Just as Treats n’ Treasures supported seniors, More Than a Fad Thrift Store will be supporting women and their children in recovery at Adeara. The store will continue to operate with an incredible team of staff and volunteers who wish to serve the community.
