We are open and the food cupboard is serving clients Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 pm to 3 pm. Due to the Covid -19 Crisis, our client base has doubled and resources are becoming sparse. Consequently, we are in great need of donations of food and/or funds. We greatly appreciate any assistance in this regard.
