Some information about The Caring Place “Second Helping” was incorrect in our JUNE 1th issue. The employees’ were given a preview and tour of the store prior to opening. Currently, the store does not have plans to open the second floor of the building for shopping. Donations to The Caring Place provide support for local programs; they are not distributed directly to clients.
