Nantucket Cottage Hospital/Big Donation
Nantucket Cottage Hospital has received a gift of 386-thousand dollars from the Hospital Thrift Shop.
The money will be used to purchase new medical equipment and other capitol items, as well as handmade furniture for the new hospital.
The gift represents one of the thrift shop’s largest annual contributions in nearly 90 years of steadfast support of the hospital.
The Hospital Thrift Shop sells merchandise donated by island residents and visitors – anything from used books to furniture to artwork – from mid-May through mid-October and operates as a separate non-profit organization.
The 2018 season marked its 89th year in business on India Street.
