News from the Springfield Family Center

If you are moving or packing for storage, have we got a deal for you? The Family Center finds itself with too many banana boxes that it cannot use. We would like to make them available to those that might need them.

If not, they will be broken down and taken to the Recycling Center. Just come to the Center during regular hours and get as many boxes as you can use.

The Family Center is once again without someone that needs kitchen scraps for its pigs.

We have been fortunate over time to have people with pigs that could use these scraps. It makes sense to reuse rather than pay to throw away.
