It has fairly humid outside compared to other days.

I have sorted through a cardboard box of: DVDs checking the bottoms of the DVDs for deep scratches. I used a café table and made up several piles to organize the categories of good condition and bad condition.

Numerous Ice Creams were bought in the afternoon by either Kids or Families that had come in to have relief from the heat.

I gathered extra books using a large Shopkins bag from in back. I placed novels into the container until a fair number were in. I took two trips worth of books.

New donations were given at the upfront desk to Amanda and Nicole two staff members working that day. Amanda and Nicole both did turns, sorting and folding clothes during the afternoon shift.

Morgan was in jovial mood today, He swept the floors clean.

Many new donations were to be sorted By Staff members: Amanda, Maddy and Paula. They arranged clothes and placed them on hangers getting them ready for their proper placements on the racks.

Amanda took in some donations for a donator while Morgan was on break and brought them to be organized and set up for later pricing.

Many participants have entered the Coloring Contest so far, lots of artworks are on display around the store from Kids to Adults of all ages.
