2nd Quarter—April—June 2020
Reach Out Barn closes for this year
We are sad to announce that the Reach Out Barn will not be open for 2020. Due to Covid 19, confined space in the barn and the inability for the rummage sale to happen till fall, the decision was made not to open this year.
Please spread the word that we are not accepting any donations until April 2021.
Fortunately, we still have funds to help Love INC,.clients with requests for lodging, car repairs, and utility bills this year.
We look forward to opening next spring…
