ANGELS IN THE ATTIC ANNOUNCES PARTIAL REOPENING IN LATE JUNE.
ANGELS ISSUES PLEA FOR VOLUNTEERS SO WE CAN BE OPEN MORE DAYS AND HOURS.

The Angels in the Attic Store has developed safe plans to reopen only on these Saturdays: June 20th and June 27th, with normal hours of 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

A decision on reopening the Angels Donation Center and the Angels Furniture Store will be made on or about June 10.

We urge more citizens who are not in a protected age class to volunteer, so that it would make possible opening on additional days. Since a large percentage of our current volunteers are seniors, some of whom have pre-existing conditions, you can understand the situation. If you are available to volunteer, please email us at angelsfloydinfo@gmail.com or stop by on the first day the store opens.

Volunteers do a wide variety of tasks, some of which would fit your talents and availability. A few are at the cash register. Others stock the shelves with toys, books, tools, and kitchenware, while others fill the racks with clothing. Yet others apply price tags. Those at the Angels Donation Center sort donations into categories for resupplying the store. Those at the Angels Furniture Store receive new donations, assist customers, and handle the register. If you only have 2 hours available 3 days a week, or 3 hours one day a week, or some other odd schedule, we surely can use your help. You can choose the kind of tasks you feel fit your talents.

Keep in touch frequently for more updates with the Angels in the Attic Facebook page, and with the Angels website at www.angelsintheattic.org

WHEN ANGELS IN THE ATTIC MIGHT RE-OPEN
It all depends on the Governor, as well as the County and local governments, as to when it is allowed.

Our guess is that there will be clarification by government entities during the last week or two of May, and just possibly there might be an ok to reopen the first of June.

Also, you must remember that most of the volunteers are seniors, so their agreement is necessary to build enough staffing to re-open the stores. We understand that any with underlying health issues may choose to wait awhile longer before returning.

If there are non-seniors (as a group, less health risk) who would like to volunteer, please send an email to us at angelsfloydinfo@gmail.com, as we think additional help will be needed. Of course, seniors are also welcome to join.

We will update you as soon as this situation clears up.

INVENTORY SEARCHED FOR ITEMS WITH LOCAL SHORTAGES

Angels in the Attic has examined all of its locations for items that might have been donated, which are now in short supply in Floyd County, with an intention to donate them to local charitable organizations who have the capability to distribute them. The obvious items searched for included toilet paper, masks, diapers, and paper towels. Some material for masks was located, but is now depleted. We wish there had been more items somewhere in inventory. We assisted one person urgently needing mobility medical equipment. We thank our volunteers for assisting in this search effort.

VOLUNTEERS AT ANGELS IN THE ATTIC INCLUDE THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND AROUND 80 STAFF
The official name is Floyd County Angels Ministries, Inc.

The Board of Directors include these volunteers:
Jim Shortt, Chairman of the Board

Will Griffin CPA
Mauyer Gallimore
Sandra Shank
Connie Quesenberry
Bill Gardner
Rhonda Daiber, Volunteer Manager of Angels Boutique

The Board of Directors has the typical duties of a board, setting policy, approving expenditures, and approving the donations of funds and materials to local area charitable organizations

ALL ANGELS IN THE ATTIC STORES PLUS THE DONATION CENTER ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS COVID-19
…..The staff has reviewed its inventory in all locations to determine if there might be any previously donated items useful to medical clinics, nursing homes, or individuals during this crisis. The kinds of items considered were surgical masks or woodworking masks, scrubs, disinfecting wipes, hand sanitizer, depends or similar medical items that might be in short supply, and we were disappointed to find there were none…….We do carry crutches and walkers at times, but there is no current need for them, of which we are aware……..

This includes the Angels Donation Center and its minibarn, because the minibarn has limited space and ordinarily it must be emptied 4 times per week to make space for continuing donations, which is no longer possible.
The Angels Furniture Store is closed
The Angels in the Attic Store is closed
The Angels Boutique is closed
The Angels Donation Center minibarn is closed
We were reluctant to close down these facilities because we are aware that many people depend on them, however, most of the Angels volunteers are seniors who are at much higher risk from the effects of coronavirus Covid-19.
We will be re-evaluating our status weekly, so please continue to access the Angels Facebook page, as well as the Angels in the Attic website www.angelsintheattic.org
For all of you, we wish you stay well during this crisis.

CONTACT INFORMATION. This information already exists in another section of this Angels in the Attic website, under the heading of “Contact Us, Open Hours” but it is worth repeating here for people new to using this site, or people new to Floyd County and not familiar with the Angels stores.

The only telephone number for Angels is at the main store Angels in the Attic, and is 540-745-4500 and is staffed only during open hours. Please leave a message if no one answers. Your call will be returned the next day of operation. At the other stores, volunteers only have their personal cell phones because of a tight budget dedicated to serving the people of Floyd County.

Mailing address: Angels in the Attic, P.O. Box 405, Floyd, VA 24091. Angel’s has a website at angelsintheattic.org

Please email Angels in the Attic regarding volunteering, or general information, at angelsfloydinfo@gmail.com Responses, done by volunteers, may take up to 48 hours.

ANGELS DONATION CENTER and ANGELS FURNITURE STORE hours and days of operation:
The Angels Donation Center is always open, around the clock, to drop off donations inside the minibarn, 7 days a week. Please do not leave donations outside because they will be ruined by the weather. For furniture donations, take to the lower driveway and place on the concrete pad beneath the overhang for protection from the weather. The sole location for dropping off donations of all kinds, and for the Angels Furniture Store, is 112 Needmore Lane, Floyd, VA, which is located on the corner of Route 8 and Needmore Lane next door to the Harvest Moon Food Store
For ANGELS FURNITURE STORE purchases, please pay first prior to pickup, and the following open hours apply: Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 9 am to 2 pm. Closed Mondays, Thursdays, and Sundays. It is best if you drop off large items (such as furniture) during the Furniture Store open hours so they can be taken into the building out of the weather, and the Furniture Store is located at the second driveway of the house where the Angels Donation minibarn is situated.

ITEMS ARE FLYING OFF THE SHELVES AT ANGEL’S FOUR STORES
Angels in the Attic
Angels Boutique
Angels Christmas Store
Angels Furniture Store

The volunteers have been too busy tending to customers to take photos and write up about available items, and in any case with items selling quickly, they may be gone by the time a shopper shows up.

So, the only solution for the Holidays is to go to each store to examine what is in stock at that moment, and make your purchases. For the hours and days that each store is open (and they each have different hours and days), go to the website angelsintheattic.org
