We are doing this from the sales at our Thrift store on Moon Mountain Rd. along with the donations of items to keep it going. For this, we thank You. Without your help and support we would really struggle to help people. Among those helped where: Four families with their power bills. 15 folks with gasoline to get to doctor visits, or help to get on their way out of town. Two people with medicine needs that insurance would not cover. Three families stranded here needing a place to stay overnight. We helped in total for the month. 12 single men, fi ve single women, and 26 family members with food, propane and clothing. Again Thank You. And as soon as we have any word on the progress of our new store we will be very pleased to pass it on to you all. And please remember we will be at the temporary store 6 days a week from 8- 10 am.
