A NEED FOR A PICKUP TRUCK – DONATION SOUGHT
The Angels Donation Center at 112 Needmore Lane needs a pickup truck to haul tall items locally, that do not fit into the current van. The pickup can be a gas hog, and it does not have to look pretty, since it will be used only for short trips a few days a week locally around Floyd. It needs to be safe (good brakes), and the drivers seat needs to be able to adjust for the lady drivers. You may stop by to discuss this with Priscilla on Mon, Tue, Wed, Fri between 8am-2pm at the Angels Donation Center, or call her cell at two three nine, nine eight eight nine.
Since Angels in the Attic is a charitable organization, you may be able to claim an income tax deduction for the value of the truck.
VOLUNTEERS AT THE ANGELS DONATION CENTER HAPPY FOR THE EXPANDED GARAGE WITH ITS SUMMER AIR CONDITIONING AND WINTER HEATING. MORE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED.
The garage area at the Angels Donation Center at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd has been expanded to the rear with additional space, which is now completed, and occupied. It has excellent lighting, and ample space for volunteers to do their tasks (there will be more space when the temporary storage of some furniture ends soon).
If you were a volunteer in the past, and were too hot, or too cold, or too crowded, please stop by and look at the amazing improvements to the intake and sorting area.
Volunteers have a wide range of tasks to choose from, to fit their interests (books, clothing, furniture, toys, baby items, and more). They can choose their hours and days (of course, during the open hours which are Mon, Tues, Wed, and Fri 8 AM-2 PM). Please stop by during open hours to see for yourself if it is a good fit for you.
Angels in the Attic is a charitable non-profit organization which serves Floyd Couny in many ways.
BICYCLE REPAIR VOLUNTEER NEEDED AT THE ANGELS DONATION CENTER
There are several bicycles at the Angels Donation Center at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd that are in need of repair. It may be necessary to cannibalize some bikes in order to get others into working and safe condition. If you have some experience in fixing bikes, and have your own tools, please contact Priscilla at the Angels Donation Center on Mon, Tue, Wed, or Fri during open hours 8 AM to 2 PM, or call her at two-three-nine nine eight eight nine.
NEW BUILDING FOR FURNITURE AT ANGELS DONATION CENTER OPENING SOON
The new building at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd is nearing completion and there will be an announcement when the dock is ready for receiving donated furniture, and when the furniture is ready for viewing for sale.
Currently, there have been no furniture sales for awhile. Furniture has been tucked away here and there, stacked to the ceiling on top of one another, and gathering dust while awaiting the completion of new construction. The furniture will need to be moved from the current locations into the new building, then placed into aisles so that visitors can look at all the furniture, and finally all the furniture needs to be dusted and cleaned.
As for the status today, take a look at the photos. The future parking area is that pile of dirt and stumps. The building is still being worked on. The driveway is ready only for construction vehicles. The interior is spacious, but there is so much of a backlog of furniture, it may be filled by opening day.
The many volunteers who work at the Donation Center are anxiously awaiting the move of furniture into the new building, as some of their current workspace has to be shared with stored furniture, thus hampering their activities.
Those customers who need to purchase furniture have also been inquiring when they can buy it for their apartment or house. Today I had a tour of the current storage areas, and there are sofas, desks, cabinets, doors, door frames, wood and metal beds, upholstered and wooden chairs, an antique steamer trunk with coat hangers and drawers, stereo cabinet, dining table, and a whole bunch of others that could not be seen due to every cubic foot taken up by furniture of all kinds.
House owned by Angels across the street from the Donation Center. Currently used for furniture storage.
