Shirley Dennis of Georgetown was named 2012 Volunteer of the Year at the annual Volunteer Thank You Dinner of Georgetown Aid Inc. Dennis gave 113.5 hours at the organization’s Robin Hood Thrift Shop in 2012.

More than 50 years ago, Shirley Dennis and her husband Sheldon operated a very successful neighborhood grocery in the same building that the Robin Hood has occupied for the past 35 years at the corner of Kimmey and Cedar streets in Georgetown.

Georgetown Aid Inc. was organized by local church leaders nearly four decades ago to assist Georgetown residents in need. Robin Hood Thrift Shop is the organization’s primary source of revenue. Staffed entirely by volunteers, the shop is open weekdays from noon to 3 p.m., offering good-quality clothing, housewares, toys, books and more at affordable prices.

Many of Robin Hood’s volunteers have faithfully served since the shop opened. An RSVP site, Robin Hood Thrift Shop is always seeking new volunteers to serve as cashiers for as little as three hours a month. Volunteers are also needed to sort and price donations on Monday and Thursday mornings. For more information contact Ramona Anderson by calling 302-856-7530, or email SewingMomMom@aol.com.
