Ocracoke’s Village Thrift shop will hold an “everything must go” giveaway for four days next week, Monday through Thursday from 1 to 3 p.m. each day.

The giveaway, Oct. 19 to 22, will be at the house across from Community Square where the shop has been since 2015.

Gael Hawkins, one of the managers, said the giveaway items include household goods, some clothing and shoes, books and a variety of miscellaneous items, most of which was donated after Hurricane Dorian flooded the building Sept. 6, 2019, and rendered a lot of stuff unusable.

All those attending must wear a face covering and stay socially distant.

Hawkins said the staff will monitor how many people can be inside each day.

The Ocracoke Youth Center Board recently decided to shut down Village Thrift due to the limitations imposed by the COVID-19 until a future date when a possible new location will be rented.
