Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, the nonprofit organization that has been shipping care packages and letters to U.S. soldiers serving overseas for 10 years, will open its first thrift store Saturday in the Buttonwood Plaza shopping center.
Founder Lynelle Zelnar said the thrift store — already stocked with donated furniture, china, televisions, clothing and books — will help support the organization’s packing operation in Lake Worth and will be used to supply returning veterans with furnishings for their homes.
