SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
Since 1964, Coral Thrift Shop’s all-volunteer staff and the hundreds of donors and clientele who support their mission have donated nearly $3 million to local youth organizations, according to the thrift shop’s press release.
This year, Coral awarded 25 scholarships to students of $2,000 each in memory of longtime landlord, dear friend and extraordinary supporter, Robert Brooks.
The 2017 recipients from Dana Hills High School include Riann Martino and Gissel Salgado.
