Coral Thrift Shop awarded over $34,000 in scholarships to San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano High School graduating seniors in 2012. This year they expect to exceed that amount.
All proceeds from the 100 percent volunteer manned shop ($1.9 million since it was opened in 1964) are given back to community youth. The scholarship program is a top priority.
Applications are available through the high school counselor offices and at Coral’s Thrift Shop, located at 534 North El Camino Real. The shop is open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
