Platte Canyon Community Partnership Resale Boutique was recently closed for three months, but now they’re back and better than ever. 

The Boutique opens their doors to anyone wearing a mask, respects the social distancing requirements, and uses the complimentary hand sanitizer upon entering. 

Platte Canyon Community Boutique supports non-profit organizations such as Boys and Girls Club, Mountain Peace Shelter, Life Bridge Pantry, Friends of Mount Evans and Lost Creek Wilderness, Area High School Scholarship Fund, Mother of Preschoolers, Widows Oil Pantry, Senior Alliance of Platte Canyon, and Deer Creek Elementary Greenhouse. 

Recently, Boys and Girls Club members volunteered their time to the Boutique. The members spent their day sprucing up inside the Boutique and outside of the Bailey Plaza. As a result, Boys and Girls Club was rewarded $1,550. 

Platte Canyon Boutique continues to support these organizations through community volunteers. These volunteers perform various tasks including the following:

“Sorting donations, cleaning donations, price checking, cleaning the store, customer service and 8so much more” Charlotte Wytias, Board of Member of Resale Boutique, said. 

Wytias encourages the community\ to “Shop! Shop! Shop! The more money we make, the more we can support local non-profit organizations.” 

The Boutique accepts donations every Wednesday and Sunday. Any furniture donations need to be called in advance. Donations are also Tax-Deductible. All donations are quarantined for three days, and hard-surface items are thoroughly hand-cleansed by volunteers before being displayed. 

“We only sell items that are in good condition. Anything not in near-prime condition is then donated to another non-profit organization,” Wytias said. 

Platte Canyon Boutique is committed to supporting organizations that benefit the community and its members.
