Press Release

Millersburg, OH – Save and Serve Thrift Shop raised more than $4,500 dollars for the Holmes County Trail during a special benefit day held last month.

During the April 29 event, 100 percent of gross sales were allocated to support the 23-mile section of trail, which accommodates cyclists, pedestrians, horseback riders and Amish buggies.

The donation is part of Save and Serve’s ongoing initiative to improve and support the local community by meeting basic needs. The Holmes County Trail was selected as a beneficiary, because it provides valuable recreational opportunities for local residents and tourists as well as a safe route for non-automobile traffic.

“The heart of Save and Serve is neighbors helping neighbors,” said Eric Raber, Save and Serve General Manager. “When you donate gently used, high-quality items to our store, you’re helping us support a wide range of local causes and organizations.” 

The next Save and Serve Benefit Day will be held on July 29. Proceeds will go to Love INC, an organization that connects churches with opportunities to serve their neighbors in need.

About: Save and Serve is a non-profit thrift store in Holmes County, Ohio that supports the local and global relief, development and peace projects of the Mennonite Central Committee.
