Roving Reporter | "Castaways Grants Funds to Wings Rescue Center" by Jeanette Larson

"Castaways Thrift Shop gave back to the community with a grant for $5,000 to support Wings Rescue Center. President Kay Adams and grant writer John Aquilino accepted the gift on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. Funds will be used to help complete the bird rehabilitation center at 301 Third Street in Rockport. The center is expected to open in May to care for orphaned baby birds. When the center is complete and certified by state and federal officials, Wings Rescue Center volunteers will be able to care for injured birds locally. Castaways Thrift Shop is run by volunteers and the profits from sales of donated items are given back to the community and to sponsoring churches." - Jeanette Larson
