LSR is very appreciative of the local community and their generous support for the store. Customers have commented on how clean and nice smelling the store is compared to other thrift stores they have shopped in. Gross revenue from the Thrift Store for the fiscal year was $87,647.
This past year at our Evanston service locations we continued to have several facility improvements. We replaced all of the carpeting at our John Hancock home with vinyl planking. The new flooring looks great and makes for a lot easier cleanup when accidents happen. The paved parking in front of John Hancock was also expanded for staff parking and a sidewalk added to allow for staff and clients to safer access to vehicles. The day programming building received a new metal roof on the west wing to address water leakage that had been occurring.
