Angels in the Attic – Floyd Virginia – We need your HELP this Saturday!

I ran into Kathy Blackwell, Operations Manager, for Angels in the Attic. I asked her “how have the relocation efforts going? She told me that after taking a closer look and discussions with board members, it was decided not to move to the Harris & Baker building on the east side of town.

Angels in the Attic has been closed since April 30 to reorganize and make a few repairs. This Saturday May 7th, Kathy is asking for anyone that can volunteer an hour or two to stop by and help with the reorganizing efforts. They really need strong bodies to move some of the heavier things. If you can spare even 30 minutes of your time please stop by.

Re-Opening on Friday, May 20th, 2011

———————————————

Angels in the Attic is a not-for-profit organization, staffed solely by volunteers. Items, such as clothing and household items are donated, then displayed and sold at our thrift shop. All monies, less operational expenses, are given back to the Floyd community.

We have been operating since March, 2000, first at a small shop on Locust Street, then at the old Crenshaw building, on route 221. Angels in the Attic is now open in own building, at 201 South Locust Street, in the center of Floyd.

Our Mission

To provide the opportunity for re-use of those items, no longer needed or wanted, that clutter homes.

To provide an opportunity for everyone to save and benefit from “treasures in the attic”.

To provide volunteer opportunities for old and young, to join together for common good.

To provide funds to reach out to each other in times of need.

Who is helped

Funds are distributed to local service agencies: Christmas for Children, Medical Charities, Free Clinic, Department of Social Services – vouchers; New River Community Action – food pantry, emergency fund and vouchers; Floyd County Volunteer Fire department and Rescue Squads.
