Thrift Shop Exodus
A volunteer shortage at the PTO Shop
"We're down to one volunteer a day," says Janet Fritsch, chair of the PTO Thrift Shop. "We used to have ten or fifteen." The shop, which raises money for PTO and booster groups in the public schools, lost most of its volunteers in March, when it posted a notice that parents could no longer earn money toward their own children's school trips by working there.
