The Smith Mountain Lake Discovery Shop is the only Discovery Shop in the country that is specifically focused on home furnishings, and is operated entirely by volunteers. The shop is open six days a week, and sells high-quality home furnishings to raise money for the fight against cancer. In addition to offering merchandise, the Shop provides information on cancer and treatments for the disease. It is also a place for those fighting cancer and those who have won their battle with the disease to meet and support one another in monthly groups. For over 40 years, the American Cancer Society has operated Discovery Shops across the country.
“All of us who volunteer here at the shop are especially appreciative of this fabulous donation from Gabby and our customers are thrilled,” said Dee Kropf, Merchandise Acquisition Coordinator for the Shop.
This is Gabby’s second donation to the Shop, and fulfills the company’s mission to give back to and serve the community.
“We have been working with the Discovery Shop for over a year and we are excited to continue to help this great organization in the fight against cancer,” said William White, Vice President of Gabby.
Launched in 2010, Gabby’s Mission is to be an innovator in the furnishings and décor industry by creating exquisite products that change the way people think about home furnishings. We strive to exceed the expectations of our customers, giving their homes a fresh and unique style all while giving back to the community.
