Night drop off proves easy target for theives

August 24, 2011

Citizens of Antlers and surrounding communities,

First of all we want to thank you for your generosity of all the donations we receive, but it seems like a few people around here believe it is ok to take anything they want from what is left in front of and behind the SOS For Families Thrift Store.

The profits from our store go for battered women, or men, and their children.

The items are sometimes left when our store is closed and we try to put them in as soon as possible but if one of us are not passing by the store it seems like some people think it is theirs for the taking.

The temperature during the club’s last four bass tournaments had reached well above the one hundred-degree mark, but only reached into the upper nineties for this one. A welcomed change.
