Thrift Store Donates Millions to Philipsburg Hospital

PHILIPSBURG -

Since 1979, Granite County Medical Center has received about $1.3 million in funding from the H&R Thrift Store, located just a few blocks down the street in Philipsburg.

H&R store manager, Angela Knauer, said the 6,000 square foot thrift shop is completely run by volunteers.

Knauer said all the store receives donations from locals and surrounding states, and all proceeds go to the hospital and rest home -- the H&R namesake.

In total, Knauer said the store's dollars have helped install flooring, a public restroom, a nurses' station, and even a heart monitor.

Angela Knauer, H&R Thrift Store Manager, said, "It's so rewarding, and it's, you know, an honor to be able to work here and do what we do for that reason, so, like I said, it's really a great thing."

Knauer said their next $75,000 donation will go toward the renovation of 17 patient rooms and a family room at the medical center.
