There were big smiles and many hugs to celebrate National Hug Day at Kindale’s Armstrong thrift store.

Volunteers at the store have logged more than 5,000 hours which equals $94,826.

“We are very proud to announce that a portion of this money will be used for the new Kindale bus,” said B Elliott, executive director of the organization, which assists individuals with development disabilities.

“It might not be glamorous but without safe transportation, many individuals would not be able to have access to everything from doctor’s appointments to hockey games.”

With about 35 volunteers, the store is open Monday to Saturday, 9:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

“We have an amazing group of volunteers but there is always room for more. If you would like to join us in making a difference in the lives of people with diverse abilities, please stop by the thrift store and learn how,” said Cindy Masters, development officer.
