Oasis Appliance: Off To A Successful Start!

May 06, 2009

Thanks to the group efforts of many volunteers and word of mouth advertising, the appliance store we opened recently is up and running at a profit!  Everyone is welcome to shop here so if you’re in the market for a refrigerator, oven, dishwasher or washer/dryer, come and check us out!  We are always looking for additional volunteers to work in the store or to help us pick up appliances from donors.  We are thrilled and grateful for the success of this new endeavor!
