Putnam Hospital Center thrift store seeks volunteers

Posted: 1/31/2020

Eagle Eye is looking for volunteers to help run the thrift shop.

The shop, among the oldest in Brewster, is run entirely by the Putnam Hospital Center Auxiliary, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to fund vital programs and services at the hospital. Some of these recent fundraising efforts have resulted in planned renovations to the Emergency Department and the installation of a 3-D mammography unit.

“The charm of Eagle Eye is the volunteers who are like family and share the same enthusiasm of helping the hospital and the community,” said

John Mahoney, manager of Volunteer Resources for the hospital. 

Eagle Eye offers gently worn and used items, including men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, shoes, toys, housewares, crockery and knick-knacks. Tax-deductible donations are always welcome.

The thrift shop, along with the hospital gift shop and other fundraising activities, has allowed the PHC Auxiliary to make more than $8 million in pledge payments to the hospital since the group formed in 1963.

Eagle Eye is at 65 Main St., and is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mahoney at 845-230-4752 or
