Business has been booming at the Passavant Community Gift Shop ever since its move the first floor of the main building three years ago.

The Auxiliary of Passavant Community has worked to expand the shop and used the profits to fund numerous projects contributing the local community while helping residents in need.

“We have much more inventory, bigger variety and a lot more exposure,” said Nancie Johnson, gift shop manager.

To date, the shop has funded handbells, a campus bus, library books, a Christmas gift fund for residents, hospital beds, blanket warmers and defibrillators and more.

The shop is packed with snacks, necessities, delicacies, sportswear and handmade goods – and the selection is always increasing.

“We just started selling cutlery,” said Betty Clyde, assistant to the manager.

Community residents also make things to sell in the shop including dishcloths and poetry cards.

The shop also offers necessities like light bulbs and hearing aid batteries, things that residents would otherwise have to leave the community to buy.
