380 families made 1100 visitis to the Free Store in 2012. For 2013, we are on pace to see a 50% increase in that number. Our store is run completely by volunteers, and we are seeking help to bring upgrades to the space we use.
While the space the Free Store uses works well in many ways, it poses a challenge in the summer months. The large size of the rooms and its location on the second floor lead to some very warm conditions when it is warm outside. Fans alone are not up to the task of keeping the shopping floor and main sorting room at a reasonable temperature. We are seeking funds to install a proper air conditioning system in both rooms.
