Tammy Modic, executive director of Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing (NATH), received a check in the amount of $660 from Ellyn Dahnke and Gloria Olson of St. Germain United Church of Christ Thrift Shop Oct. 7. 

The donation is the largest in the history of the program and is the result of generous counter donations as well as a matching amount provided by the shop from sale proceeds.

NATH maintains a temporary residence and related program in Rhinelander known as Frederick Place. The organization’s goal is to end or prevent homelessness while providing safe housing and basic needs to individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness.

The Thrift Shop uses a counter donation jar to receive cash gifts from customers and then matches those gifts from store proceeds. The October counter donation is earmarked for North Woods cancer awareness programs at the Marshfield Clinic Northwoods Center in Minocqua.

The shop is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and is closed Sundays. It is located in the strip mall adjacent to Sentry Foods in St. Germain.
