Main Street Treasures, Crofton's non-profit thrift store, donated $150 each to 30 different Crofton High School groups and accounts on Friday, Feb. 15.

Joyce Stevens, Main Street Treasures Board of Directors Member, and Bernice Tramp, Main Street Treasures Core Group volunteer, presented the checks to Crofton's High School Principal, Johnnie Ostermeyer and Crofton's Superintendent, Corey Dahl.
The Main Street Treasures Board of Directors hopes that these donations will provide a boost to the school’s activities’ accounts and will bring recognition to some of the lesser-known groups within the school. The goal was to make a donation that would have an impact on all students at Crofton High School. The groups affected by the donation involve sports, academics, the arts, music, and honors. Johnnie Ostermeyer, CHS Principal, had this to say about the donations, “Crofton High School is so blessed to have such a great business like Main Street Treasures in our community that benefits everyone that takes advantage of it. Then, in return, Main Street Treasures gives it right back to our school organizations and other deserving projects. Crofton High School would like to thank Main Street Treasures for their generosity.”
Main Street Treasures accepts donations of lightly used, quality clothing, accessories, household items, kitchenware, décor, and small furniture and sells them for reasonable prices. The proceeds of the sales are donated back to the community. Main Street Treasures has contributed more than $31,800 to the community since opening in June of 2017.
