LONOKE, Ark. (KTHV) - It was an emotional day for two Lonoke women whose non-profit thrift shop sponsored its first ever school supply give away for local children.
"We both at a young age were struggling mothers with children so we've been there, done that," said Donna Waddle, who along with Kim Martin opened the 2nd Chance Outreach Thrift Shop June 16th. "We have been on the receiving end so all we're trying to do is give back."
On Friday, the women gave away school supplies they purchased with profits from the thrift store. By the end of the day, more than 60 kids had new pencils, pens, paper, and notebooks. "I'm thankful. That's all I can say," said Susan Fritz. "Without it, the first day they might not even have a pencil."
