The Rainycrest Tuck Shop is accepting donations. The Auxiliary thanks you for your generosity. Residents enjoy having the ability to come to the store to shop and are always excited to see new items in the Tuck Shop. With spring and summer approaching, we are in need of new items: purses/ handbags/wallets, scarves, jewelry, medium and large stuffed animals, unscented personal hygiene items for men and women, socks, gift items and decor items that a resident might like in their room or to decorate the door. These are just suggestions, and if you are not sure what to donate, drop by the Tuck Shop and talk to Gary. You can drop off items at the Tuck Shop or place the items (labelled ATTN Gary Tuck Shop) on the cart in the lobby.
