Anyone entering the building must wear a mask that covers mouth and nose. If you do not have one we will give you one.
Everyone's temperature will be taken upon entry into the building.
Appointments are required for the Food Pantry. Call 717-762-6941 for an appointment.
Appointments are not required for the Clothes Closet, however we will be limiting the number of people in the clothes Closet at any time, so there may be a wait time. See below for other steps we are taking to protect all visitors and staff at WCHS.
WCHS values everyone, and during this pandemic response period we are continuing our efforts to help all of our neighbors in need. We are grateful for the increased support we have received as well as being thankful for everyone's gracious acceptance of the changes we have made in our operations.
Per the Pennsylvania Governor, during this period of emergency operations qualifications for food assistance have changed.
If you need food call us. .
All food distributions are conducted by appointment only. We currently have three options for the Food bank but all require appointments.
1. Using a list of what is currently available, clients select what they want the day before their appointment. Staff and volunteers will then pack it up in boxes. Clients pick it up outside or volunteers deliver to them. Order forms are available for clients to select what foods they would like. If you do not have access to the order form we will call you the day before your appointment and take your order by phone.
2. We also have restarted our process were the recipient comes in and "shops" our food pantry the same as prior to the CoVid processes.
Starting on October 5th, donations of clothing, household items and other miscellaneous items will be accepted during any regular operating hour.
We can not accept televisions.
For large items (i.e. beds, sofas, chairs) please make an appointment before bringing them in.
Financial donations can be accepted either on-line, by mail or hand delivered to our office.
Fresh Express is still continuing on the First Tuesday of the month from 10:00 to 12:00.
We modified the process and will follow a "Drive-Through" or "Walk-Through" process only, with no recipients entering the building.
We will pre-back Fresh Express items and deliver to each recipient as they remain in their vehicle, in the case of walking clients, as they walk up to the front of the building during Fresh Express hours.
WCHS has expanded our weekend backpack program from 146 individual bags to 300 bags. Each bag is intended to support up to 2 children. The weekend food is being distributed to Waynesboro Area School District students on Fridays when the students come to the elementary schools for the school's lunch program.
Our Clothing Bank has reopened. Revised procedures:
- limited number of people will be allowed in the Clothing areas at the same time.
- visits will be limited to 1 hour
The Diaper Bank is operating by appointment only. Please call and set up an appointment for pick up. When possible we encourage this pick up be completed at the same time as a food pick up.
