Big Walnut Friends Who Share, eastern Delaware County’s grassroots, all-volunteer social service agency, is moving to a new location.
Friends Who Share President Larry Tornes said Friends Who Share is moving from 216 High Street in Sunbury to the Community Building at Vans Valley Community Church. Vans Valley Community Church is located at 14440 State Route 37 East, approximately three miles east of Sunbury on State Route 37 East going towards Johnstown.
Tornes said Friends Who Share volunteers would make the move this Saturday and Sunday, December 17 and 18.
“Big Walnut Friends Who Share will be open to serve clients at the new Vans Valley Church location on December 21,” Tornes said. “The clothing drop off will be at the new location, and Friends Who Share will have the same scheduled hours for clients.”
The new Big Walnut Friends Who Share Store at Vans Valley Community Church will be open to those in need on Wednesday mornings from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., and during the evening on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 6:30 p.m. until 8 p.m.
On the second Saturday of each month, senior citizens can visit the new Friends Who Share Store from 10 a.m. until noon. Volunteers help out at the center from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. every Monday morning. The store accepts donated items on Mondays from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and Wednesdays from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
