Ladies of Charity Lake Travis held its groundbreaking event Nov. 14 at the site of its new thrift shop location at 440 Medical Parkway Drive, Lakeway. Embree Construction is helping with the building of the new location within the medical district in Lakeway off RM 620 and has taken on the endeavor as one of its charity projects. The new building, which at about 12,000 square feet will double in size from its current location, is expected to be complete by May. Ladies of Charity Lake Travis representative Sandy Beaty said the project was also made possible by Realtor Greg Ganske, architect Dave Heckler, project advisor Wayne Hussey, lawyer Mark Scott and banker John Miller. Beaty said the operating costs of the new location will reduce significantly because the nonprofit will eventually own the building instead of rent, and the group's nonprofit status means it will not have to pay property taxes. Ladies of Charity Lake Travis provides financial support to the Lake Travis Crisis Ministries, the area's local food bank and crisis center. The thrift shop is moving from its current location at 1508 S. RM 620, Ste. 105, in Lakeway. 512-263-0614. www.laketravisthrift.com
