Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone affected during these challenging times. Like so many, we have been specifically concerned for the school children who will now be home for weeks. For many of these children, school is where they receive their only regular meal. Although Governor DeWine and many local school districts are currently developing plans to feed the children, we felt it was our responsibility to act immediately. The Way Station is still collecting food and monetary donations to supplement for any family in need. Our goal is to provide one box of kid-friendly food, per week, to each family with children in the home until schools reopen.
At this time our thrift stores are closed until further notice. Our Executive Director and Board Members will continue to closely monitor the situation and follow all protocols set by the Center for Disease Control and the state of Ohio in regards to retail establishments.
We have temporarily suspended all donations with the exception of food, diapers and hygiene products. We were still able to hold our monthly food distribution as scheduled and between Columbiana and East Liverpool we served over 400 families. With the loss of our thrift stores, we need the support of our partners now more than ever to help us during this uncertain time. We truly do value and depend on your gifts and thank you for your loyalty, generosity, and prayers. Gifts can be mailed to PO Box 449, Columbiana, OH 44408 or on our website here.
