Berlin, Md. Atlantic General Hospital held a ribbon cutting for the newly expanded Auxiliary Thrift Shop on Thursday.. Members of the Auxiliary and supporters of Atlantic General Hospital gathered for remarks from AGH President and CEO Michael Franklin, as well as Vice President of Public Relations and Auxiliary liaison, Toni Keiser, and Auxiliary Thrift Shop manager, Jane Wolnik.

The thrift shop, which is managed and staffed entirely by volunteers, has nearly tripled in size with the expansion. In addition to raising more than $190,000 a year for Atlantic General Hospital, the thrift shop donates clothing to those in need through Worcester Gold and Worcester County Department of Social Services as well as to inpatients who are without sufficient clothing at discharge.

The thrift shop accepts donations at the door of a large variety, including clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, household items, sports equipment, books, linens, and more. All items are sold at a reasonable price, with all of the profits from the sales going to the hospital to support patient care services, new technology and education to benefit the community.

The thrift shop is open Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The address of the newly renovated shop is 10452 Old Ocean City Blvd., Berlin, Maryland, 21811.
