A Few Announcements…..

#1: On Thursdays the Thrift Store is now open until 4:30pm. Yay!

#2: Reminder – DO NOT leave donations outside the building during non-store hours. Please contact us to make alternative arrangements if you cannot visit during regular hours.

#3: Please refrain from donating expired food to the Food Shelf. Handling food we cannot distribute is a burden on our staff/volunteer’s resources and time.

Thanks for your understanding and continued support!
