On Dec. 5, the Grove City Cancer Thrift Shop presented a check to Lifecare Alliance’s Columbus Cancer Clinic in the amount of $73,000 – the most that has ever been donated to the organization in the history of the non-profit shop. Because of the efforts of the volunteers and the community who purchases items at the store at 3684 Garden Court, hundreds of low-income individuals or those who have no or limited insurance will be able to access cancer screenings, some treatment, prosthetics, wigs, and other support services at virtually no cost. Chuck Gehring, the president and chief executive officer at Lifecare Alliance, said all of the volunteers should be proud of their efforts as they have helped “save many lives.” Pictured here from left to right at the volunteer banquet are the shop’s treasurer Gwen Miller, Lifecare Alliance CEO Chuck Gehring, the shop’s president Betty Lewis, and the shop’s assistant treasurer Patti Hines. The volunteers said it is their goal to raise even more money for the Columbus Cancer Clinic next year. The store is open from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. Special hours will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 15, 16, and 17 as part of a holiday promotion sale. For more information, visit their webpage at, their social media pages, or call the store at 614-871-1126.
