This Ol’ Place Thrift Shoppe generates funding for items for the hospital and nursing home. It is run totally by volunteers, many on a regular commitment.
Started by the Hendricks Hospital Auxiliary in 1994, it is celebrating 24 years of service to the community. It has had three different locations, the old hospital building where the clinic now is located, the building which is now the Red Barn Theater and it’s present location on the west side of Main Street.
