Support The Community Thrift Shop

To The Editor: This letter is in reference of the Estes Park Community Thrift Shop complaint stated by one person which makes you wonder if he has ever volunteered for anything in his life. If he had, then he would not be stirring up a problem for the Thrift Shop that does so much for people and individual entities in our community.
