Angel View Opens New Hemet Store; Also Clearance Center

July 21, 2015

Angel View, a nonprofit serving children and adults with disabilities, is relocating its resale store in Hemet to a new location and converting the existing store to a Clearance Center, announced Tracy Powers, general manager of resale stores.

“We’ve been in business in Hemet for 20 years at our 305 West Florida Avenue location and we greatly appreciate our shoppers’ loyalty,” Powers said. “So we’re very excited to announce that on Saturday, July 25, we’ll open in a new location on the corner of Sanderson Avenue and Acacia at the Lowe’s shopping center. Unlike the old building,” he added, “the new store is air conditioned and state of the art, which will make for a better shopping experience.”

The popular Angel View store on Florida Avenue is becoming a Clearance Center where unsold inventory from Angel View’s stores in Western Riverside County will be sold at deeply discounted prices. “Although it won’t be quite as cool indoors as the new store, if people don’t mind shopping under evaporative cooling, they’ll find hundreds of bargains in clothing, household goods and furniture,” Powers said.

“We can’t thank our donors and shoppers enough,” noted Walter Johnson, MD, president of the Angel View board of directors. “Our stores generate vital revenues that enable us to provide an exceptional quality of life for our clients. Every shirt and shoe someone donates or buys turns into a client’s step toward independence.”

The new Hemet store is located at 304 S. Sanderson; the phone number is (951) 929-8093. Store hours are Monday-Saturday 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Sundays 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Donations requiring home pickup can be scheduled by calling (866) 670-8666.

Angel View’s mission is helping children and adults with disabilities reach their maximum potential. Every year, the 60+-year old nonprofit helps hundreds of people make significant gains through a variety of programs. For more information, email or call (760) 329-6471.

Jaime’s Story

A frantic mother of two lost her vital records in a fire. Her son Jaime, 6, has a severe form of spina bifida, a type of birth defect. He needed prescriptions refilled, but without her Medi-Cal card and information, the pharmacy couldn’t fill them.

Angel View Outreach helped her navigate the system to reinstate her benefits. We also helped her access resources, enrolled Jaime in our mileage reimbursement program so he wouldn’t miss important appointments with his specialists, and used a mini-grant to cover the gap cost of medication he needed right away. Helping kids avoid medical emergencies is a key program goal.
