A friend once told me that “building a community was the ultimate team sport.” Those words came back to me when I joined the board at Park Avenue Thrift. The essence of community and partnership is felt throughout the organization: the staff, the customers, the people that donate their household items, and most especially through the mission of supporting other non-profits in Enid. It’s rewarding to be able to be a part of something that is continuously making Enid a better place to live. I’m happy to be part of the “team.”

What’s not to love about PAT?! It’s energizing to serve with a team of individuals whose talents complement the vision and mission of Park Avenue Thrift, who deeply care about the Enid community, and who are willing to give their precious gift of time. We have the honor of working alongside a director that passionately leads their staff to grow and focus on the limitless impact PAT gives back to the community. All this greatness begins and ends with the residents of Enid; those who so generously donate items and those who come to Park Avenue Thrift to find treasures.

Park Avenue Thrift operates one of the greatest non-profit business models in existence, in that it utilizes thrift items to re-sell in order to recycle, provide employment opportunities, and donate back to numerous great causes in the community!
I love that all of the board members from diverse backgrounds come together to continue to make PAT’s mission a reality. Enid is so fortunate to have Park Avenue Thrift!

I love that Park Avenue Thrift keeps the wheels turning for so many awesome organizations in our community. Before I knew much about PAT, I heard the name consistently when working with groups like Main Street Enid and The Enid Symphony Orchestra. Because I’ve seen many nonprofits benefit from PAT, I see board membership as a sort of domino effect. Pouring into Park Avenue Thrift pours right back into our community.

I appreciate PAT’s commitment to the betterment of Enid.  Great places to live, raise families, and grow businesses don’t just happen – it takes hard work and creativity energy to keep the quality level high and I see these efforts being exercised in the PAT organization.
