Clients cheer Ellsbury on

Matt Ellsbury, third from left, stands with enthusiastic employees at the Madras thrift store.When clients and staff of the Possibilities Thrift Store in Madras wanted to do something to cheer on their hometown hero, Boston Red Sox player Jacoby Ellsbury, as he plays in the baseball World Series, they had a direct connection.

For the past three years, Madras resident Matt Ellsbury, the brother of Jacoby Ellsbury, has served on the Opportunity Foundation Board of Directors, which operates the thrift store.

The Madras thrift store’s 20 clients and six staff members made signs supporting Jacoby and his team, then posted them in the store’s front windows for everyone driving by on U.S. Highway 97 to see during the games.

Matt Ellsbury posed for a photo, then was off to attend some of the World Series games in person.
