Councilman Dee Andrews Invites Residents to a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for Treasure Hunt Thriftique
2011-06-17 · By Editor
Treasure Hunt Thriftique is the second location operated by New Life Beginnings, a grassroots 501 c3 nonprofit that assist crisis stricken pregnant or homeless women to get back on their feet. They continue to reach out to many battered or abused women and their children. With guidance, a lot of hard work, and a tough love program, the mothers are able to live as contributing members of society that have broken free from the Government Welfare Program. “This new business will help our City in so many ways. From the families in need that it serves to the blight that this newly remodeled building has replaced, New Life Beginnings keeps giving back”, said Dee Andrews, Councilman of the Sixth District.
The organization also focuses on programs that assist children to overcome the obstacles of crisis that they have faced at such a young age. The non-profit solely operates on private donations and the sales generated from the stores. “The women who land on our doorstep are pregnant, homeless, often abused, depressed and hopeless. Many of them have children in tow and several have drug and alcohol problems, or failed marriages. It makes no difference whether they are penniless, on welfare or some other indigent help-system; we are here to help pregnant women in crisis take charge of their lives to become contributing members of society”, said Founders Rebecca Younger, and Bonnie Beardslee, who launched New Life Beginnings in 1984 as a 501 c-3, non-profit organization.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of Treasure Hunt Thriftique, is at 1178 East Anaheim Street, on Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 10:00 a.m.
