A portion of funds generated by the ReSale Shop and other Friends fundraising efforts help with small projects that directly benefit our residents.

Our salon was in need of some fresh paint, a new styling chair and a few other small pieces of equipment. Thanks to your continued support of the ReSale Shop we were able to make that happen.
