Wednesday Hours Have Been Extended

You asked and we listened. Wednesday hours are being extended. We will now open 2 hours earlier each Wednesday and will be open from 12 – 5 pm (instead of 2 – 5 pm). This means less wait times and more flexibility for when you come.

Instead of one shift for volunteers we will split the shift into two to match the Friday shifts. This means more volunteers are needed – if you have been thinking about volunteering this would be a great time to download an application!

The new hours are effective February 22, 2017.
