Cedar Hill, Texas. Cedar Hill Shares (formerly the Cedar Hill Food Pantry), a nonprofit organization
serving the in-need citizens of Cedar Hill, announces that its New2You Thrift Store has permanently
closed. The COVID-19 crisis crippled the organization’s ability to keep the store economically viable.
The thrift store, which opened in 2007, has provided support for the Cedar Hill Food Pantry as well as
providing a boutique-like setting for our community to shop for gently used and new clothing and
household goods at bargain prices.
We cannot begin to thank Sandy Eddy, who served as the store manager since its opening and has been
a huge part of the store’s years of success. Her team of employees contributed tremendously to the
cause and the outstanding group of regular volunteers, many of whom have given hundreds of hours of
their time to make our store a destination for so many customers. Thank you also to the many
wonderful customers who visited often in search of that something special and certainly to the many
generous members of our community who donated the goods that stocked the store.
For information about Cedar Hill Shares, please go to our website, www.cedarhillshares.org or contact
our Executive Director, Susan Bond, at 972-293-2822.

Not only is TXU Energy the largest retail electric provider in Texas, but they also have the largest bill-payment assistance program among electric providers in the nation -- TXU Energy Aid. For over 30 years, this signature program has helped families in critical situations with their electric bills, and you have the opportunity to help, too.
For every dollar donated to the program, TXU Energy matches it approximately $4 to $1 and gives 100% of the funds back to the area in which it was donated. These funds come to us, Cedar Hill Shares, and we are able to pay the TXU Energy residential account one time per calendar year for residents of Cedar Hill. Time after time, we hear stories of residents who do not have enough money to pay their electric bill and have nowhere to turn. They are so grateful for the help they receive! And we are grateful for this partnership with TXU.
Here's where you can get involved and help! There are several ways to give:
Check the box on your TXU statement that authorizes a monthly pledge or a one-time gift to TXU.
All donations are tax deductible.
We can make a difference...together!
