New Thrift Shop Sign-ups available! Please remember that our Chatham PTA Thrift Ship Hours contribute to almost half of our yearly PTA budget.

New time slots for February and March are now available: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0445aaa72dab9-pespta2. If you can't make it to a Work Group, you can also call the Pittsboro Store at (919) 542-4070 to volunteer during store hours or to volunteer to empty the store drop box in the morning.
