A second floor is currently being added to Castlegar's Treasure Shop thrift store.

Let’s do our part for our neighbours, for Castlegar, for ourselves!

Local benevolent society in the running for monetary infusion

The Castlegar & District Hospital Auxiliary Society is in the running for a share of a sizable pool of cash.

With the many good works being continually done by the society for the benefit of area residents, any and all financial support is worth a bundle.

With a strong showing of support the local society can dramatically increase it’s chances being successful in a current program/competition through the Aviva Insurance company – a search for great ideas.

The society’s idea, approved by Aviva, relates to its popular thrift shop which is currently undergoing a major expansion.

For more information on this exciting process, visit
