On February 2, 2019 Field of Dreams held their opening day for the baseball season at Aberdeen park and many children with special needs were able to realize their dream of playing ball.
Two regular Spectrum thrift store volunteers -- Ian McFather and Ethan Anderson participated in that dream by playing ball with the Red Sox.
At the same time, Alisa and Mark Tillman, owners of the Spectrum Thrift Store, helped the Field of Dreams achieve one of their fundraising goals by presenting them with a 1,000 dollar check.
In recent months the store has raised funds for ESE classrooms in several local schools. This most recent donation will benefit the patrons of the Field of Dreams and its future specially designed playground that will welcome children of all abilities.
At the store customers can purchase a wide variety of goods- from baby clothing, to furniture, to art. All proceeds go towards the non profit's goal of employing individuals with autism and other developmental disorders.
Owners Mark and Alisa Tillman invite you to stop by and shop for something unique, meet some wonderful volunteers and employees, and learn a little bit more about this important part of the local community.
