The PTA Thrift Shop received $20,000 in donations last week to help support the redevelopment of its Carrboro store.
The shop’s redevelopment campaign has now brought in $357,516 — almost half of which has come in the last two weeks.
The Carol Woods Retirement Charitable Fund donated $15,000 to the thrift shop to sponsor the staff conference room.
Steve Ginn, a long-time resident and owner of Ginn & Company, also donated $5,000 to the redevelopment fund.
The PTA Thrift Shop, which uses profits to support Chapel Hill-Carrboro PTAs, operates two stores in Carrboro and Chapel Hill.
The Carrboro store will relocate to a temporary location on Sept. 4 while its new retail and lease space is constructed.
The new location will be completed in fall 2013 and is expected to generate a 20 percent increase in annual allocations to schools.
