Due to the threat of community spread of the coronavirus, we have closed The Clothes Shop until further notice and we are not accepting donations during this time. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
The WVS food shelf is switching to an emergency food distribution model on Tuesday March 24th. Any household needing food, who is income eligible, can receive a prepacked box of nonperishable food items plus dairy, meat, produce, bread and personal hygiene items as available by coming to 402 East Second Street during specifed times.
We are suspending the need for and use of food shelf cards during this time to encourage those newly affected by the COVID-19 virus to seek help with food from WVS.
Households eligible to receive this food should have income 200% or less of the Federal Poverty guidelines or participate in any federal program like MFIP, Child Care Assistance, General Assistance, Head Start, SNAP, Section 8, NAPS, Public Housing, WIC, Energy Assistance, Free and reduced breakfast and lunch or Weatherization.
