Assistance League shop to reopen

The Assistance League of Laguna Beach will reopen its thrift shop after its annual August break for cleaning and repairs.

The shop at 526 Glenneyre St., reopened Sept. 3 and has returned to its regular hours: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.

The public donates all goods in the shop, which include clothing, housewares and toys.

Financial donations help professional therapists and parents of developmentally-delayed infants, according to a news release from Margot Rosenberg, a member of the league's public relations committee.

The league also provides eye exams, glasses, and horseback rides for children with disabilities; school supplies and clothes for the Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach; scholarships, supplies and clothing for children living on Camp Pendleton; and clothing for residents of the Friendship Shelter, a transitional housing facility in Laguna Beach, to use during job interviews, the release said.
