HCRC Programs and Services During COVID-19 National Emergency
Safety and health of our community is very important to us. With that in mind, we are making a few changes to our programs and services during the COVID-19 national emergency:
The Food Shelf is still open to serve the needs of our community. We are changing operations a little for increased safety, including frequent wipe-downs of high touch areas and having guests stay in cars in more of a "drive-through" manner rather than shopping the shelves. If you are ill, please have someone pick up for you or call us at 482-4946 to ask about delivery.
Our emergency assistance fund is always here for families who are facing a crisis. Please call Rachel (during office hours 9-5) at 482-4946.
Friends of Families programs will be suspended until May 1 (we will reschedule the swap when possible).
Twice is Nice is closed. We will reopen when possible, and we know that people may need thrift stores even more after a time of financial uncertainty.
There is no doubt that many families in our community could be under significant financial and food stress in the coming weeks, and all the offers of help we have received are much appreciated. If you would like to help us respond to increased needs, please consider supporting neighbors with a donation to HCRC. That allows us the flexibility to order what we need from the Vermont Food Bank and to direct funds where they are most needed. Online donations are best and are gratefully accepted here. We use PayPal Giving Fund so no fees are charged.
Our Board will be talking regularly and adjusting as the situation evolves. We hope this is a time for our amazing community to come together and to look out for each other!
