Angel View Announces Grand Opening of Lake Elsinore Resale Store

March 31, 2016

On Saturday, April 9, Angel View will open a new 8,000 square foot resale store at 31712 Casino Drive in Lake Elsinore. A nonprofit organization, Angel View operates 20 resale stores in Riverside and San Bernardino counties that raise funds for its programs for children and adults with disabilities.

The grand opening is slated for 9 a.m. and will include a ribbon cutting, hourly drawings for gift certificates, as well as a grand prize giveaway of a flat screen TV.

Located on the southeast corner of Casino Drive and Diamond Drive, the Lake Elsinore store will employ approximately 10 part-time and full-time workers. Hours of operation are Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. and Sundays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. The store will accept donated items including apparel, shoes, jewelry, accessories, books, household goods and furniture; donations are accepted during operating hours.

“We are delighted the residents of Lake Elsinore will be able to benefit from great bargains on our gently used merchandise and also help our clients have a better quality of life,” said Tracy Powers, general manager of Angel View resale stores. “Our resale stores play a crucial role in helping to fund Angel View’s programs.”

Each year, Angel View’s resale stores receive more than 3 million pounds of donated material that is then resold, reused or recycled. Proceeds from the sale of the donated items are used to provide a wide range of essential services to children and adults with disabilities who live in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.

Founded in 1954, Angel View offers three primary services: 24-hour residential care for children and adults with disabilities, a therapeutic Day Program for adults with developmental disabilities; and Angel View Outreach, which provides free supports and services to local families struggling to raise children with disabilities.

Timmy’s Story

Timmy spent his childhood baffling the medical community. His digestive issues and seizure activity were so profound, doctors didn’t understand how he could still be alive. His mom devoted herself to medical research and finding a place that could care for her son. Between hospitalizations, he lived in various group homes in New York. At the last one, he had so many injuries his mom sought another solution. They headed west.

Since moving into an Angel View home, Timmy is calmer, more expressive, and has far fewer seizures. He loves the staff, his housemates, our therapy dogs and his word board. He’s so adored by staff, his mother says happily, “Now he has more than one mommy.”
