Grand Opening celebrated with Chamber ribbon-cutting
Sandra Williams died at 4:35 p.m. on August 4, 2016. Exactly one year later, almost to the very minute, her daughter Tammy Legette and other members of her family cut a ribbon at the grand opening of Sandra’s Closet & Boutique in Mount Holly, fulfilling Mrs. Williams’ dream to open a shop supporting a non-profit she founded to serve homeless, abused and neglected young people in Gaston and Mecklenburg counties.
Proceeds from the sale of donated clothing and household items at Sandra’s Closet are used to operate two shelters for young people needing a temporary home. Discovery Home Care is the name of the non-profit Mrs. Williams started in 2006 to operate the shelters.
Tammy Legette told the emotional story of her mother’s dream and the shop named in her honor at the grand opening and Montcross Area Chamber ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, Aug. 4, 2017.
Sandra’s Closet is at 606 S. Main Street in Mount Holly. The shop is open for shoppers and to accept donated items Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. For more information, call 704.820.8012, or visit www.discoveryhomecare.org.
