SLIGHT ADJUSTMENT IN THE OPEN HOURS FOR THE ANGELS FURNITURE STORE ON NEEDMORE LANE. THE ANGELS DONATION CENTER THERE IS NOT AFFECTED.

The Angels Furniture Store on the lower driveway will be open on Mondays 9 am-2 pm; Wednesdays 9 am-2 pm, and Fridays 9 am-Noon.

The Angels Donation Center on Needmore Lane on the upper driveway is not affected, as the mini-barn is open for donations all the time. Please place all items inside the mini-barn to protect them from rain or wind.

Large items, such as furniture, can be taken to the lower driveway and placed on the concrete pad under the roofing, at any time, if you cannot be there during open hours. Please, never drop off mattresses as health codes forbid resale – you can take them to the County Transfer Station at no charge to residents, which is located on Storkers Knob Road.

A number of people who cannot make it to the Furniture Store on weekdays are asking for some Saturday hours, and that is being worked on, by trying to recruit more volunteers.

NEW SIGNAGE AT THE ANGELS FURNITURE STORE
Some people reported they could not find the new Angels Furniture Store which is located at 112 Needmore Lane, next to the Angels Donation Center. They should go to the lower driveway which is at the far side of the brick house.

To make it easier, there is a new sign at the street pointing toward the Angels Furniture Store, along with an Open/Closed hanging attachment.

Donations should continue to be placed inside the mini-barn at the upper driveway (to protect them from rain and to keep the front of the house looking neat), as it has been for years. However, donations of large items such as furniture, bicycles, walkers, or sofas should be taken to the lower driveway following the sign to the concrete pad under the overhang in front of the new Angels Furniture Store.

Two new signs are affixed to the front of the Angels Furniture Store. One sign identifies it as such, and the other sign reminds people there are a few donations which cannot be accepted for health or safety reasons, like mattresses, child car seats, and the bulky and heavy tube TVs. That sign reminds people that the County Transfer Station off Storkers Knob Rd accepts such items, and at no charge to local residents.

Many thanks to Andy Finn of FinnGraphics, a local business, for responding quickly to our need, and installing the signs at a reasonable cost.

HANDYMAN OR HANDYWOMAN OR WOODWORKER OR ARTIST? HOW TO PERHAPS MAKE SOME EXTRA MONEY AT HOME AND LET YOUR TALENTS FLY
We at the Angels Furniture Store and the Angels Donation Center, both at 112 Needmore Lane in Floyd, have noticed something interesting.

Most furniture donations are received in great condition, and are ready to be placed in your home or office with some dusting and maybe some furniture polish.

A few donations need some work to restore them to being in fine shape. They are priced much lower, in recognition of that condition. YOU CAN MAKE MONEY by coming in to the Angels Furniture Store, buying some of these items, restoring them, and then selling them. Some of the items could benefit by an artist doing some inspired painting, the table for sure and perhaps a wood chair or two.

Pictured below are a solid wood chair that needs some work, a chair with naugahyde back $5 that needs to be re-covered, a solid wood chair $10 that has lost its varnish, an antique school desk $10 that needs some sanding and staining, a solid wood stool $5 that needs a crack to be glued and some polish, a low cabinet $15 that needs a big water ring to be erased, and a white table $5 that needs to be repainted.  Come in and let your talents fly.

ANGELS FURNITURE STORE – OPEN AND CLOSED HOURS SCHEDULE  FOR THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS
The Manager is taking a well-deserved vacation soon, so the Furniture Store will be closed for purchases from Saturday Sept 2 through Saturday Sept 9. So, if you have immediate needs, please stop by Wed Aug 30 8am-2pm or Fri Sept 1 8am-noon. The store will re-open Monday Sept 11.

Of course, the Donation Center, including the Furniture Store dock, will be open for drop-offs of both furniture and small items (small items should be placed inside the mini-barn on the upper driveway).

Sorry for the temporary closure, but it is an example of the ongoing scarcity of volunteers requiring some difficult decisions

ANGELS FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR 2016 ARE RELEASED.
VIEW THEM BELOW, BY CLICKING THE LINKS

The official name for Angels is “Floyd County Angels Ministries Inc”, and it is a 501c3 non-profit, as determined by the IRS, and an annual statement on a certain form must be sent to the IRS under the applicable regulations. The organization operates the Angels in the Attic Store, the Angels Boutique, and the Angels Donation Center along with the Angels Furniture Store. So, the word “Angels” by itself is a nickname.

Because there are so many volunteers to run the day to day activities, there is large percentage of sales revenues from the stores that is available to be given to support local organizations such as food pantries and heating assistance. Some well known national organizations spend a lot on fund raising, many paid staff, and paid executives, so there is a small percentage left over for direct payments to their cause. Not so at Angels, which has a very high percentage of funds distributed to support worthy causes.

The hot weather is not over, as you well know by the heat and humidity you experienced today. The prices for summer wear at the Angels in the Attic Store will be so very low that you can afford to buy items to wear until the cooler weather arrives, which can be more than a couple more hot months away. Then you will have them on hand when the warm weather returns around Easter time. We will be starting the summer sale on clothes and shoes Friday August 18th with summer clothes and summer shoes being 50% off.
