Pop-Up Thrift Shop Coming to Edmond to Benefit Children Impacted by Parent’s Addiction EDMOND, OK- April 6, 2021—

 A Pop-Up Thrift Shop will enter the event scene on Saturday, April 24, 2021 from 7 am-4 pm on Peaceful Family Solutions’ grounds at 11 Burton Place, Edmond, OK 73013. The rain date is set for the following Saturday, May 1, if the weather does not cooperate.

“Like many fellow charities, we did not feel we could bring people together for a big luncheon during the pandemic. When we looked at what we had going for us during this unusual time, our extra big lot and great location and our creative donors added up to a charity sale,” says founder and Chair, Mike Barcum.

“We hope it will become an annual event, even when we are able to resume our regular activities,” says Mary Rykard, Vice Chair of the Board of Directors and Pop-Up Shop volunteer. “Everyone loves a good bargain and we have so many families who have donated really nice furniture, household items, toys and other goodies. We also know Oklahomans love kids and a good cause, and this event has both.”

Peaceful Family Solutions helps children who have been impacted by their parent’s drug or alcohol addiction. “Children who come from homes with addiction often feel alone and carry a lot of weight on their shoulders, but they are strong and resilient,” says Lisa Reed, President and Executive Director. “Introducing them to other kids in a safe and age-appropriate setting helps them realize they are not the only ones; their parent’s addiction is not their fault and they are not to blame. Most importantly, their job is to be a kid.”

“The impact of the pandemic on families struggling with addiction makes our work that much more critical and we are more determined than ever to meet the need,” says Mike Barcum. “We trust our fellow Okies will join us to support the Pop-Up Shop and healing for the children who need us.”

Peaceful Family Solutions is accepting donations through April 22. Pick up is available by appointment. Sponsorships are still available.
