Did you know that the St. Luke’s Hospital Thrift Shop, located at 148 N. Trade Street in Tryon, has 51 volunteers and one paid manager? It is located in downtown Tryon and operates Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

In 1978 the print shop was born after the St. Luke’s Hospital administrator asked for a volunteer to make copies (approximately 32,000 copies were needed each month). Today, the group of volunteers in the print shop contributes to the hospital by running the in-house print shop by printing forms, business cards, training materials and many of the hospital’s printed materials.

St. Luke’s Hospital recently honored volunteers with a luncheon. Jean Shumway was honored for 3,750 hours of service and John Hicks was honored for 4,750 hours of service.
