Drop by the Chester-Andover Family Center located at 656 Depot Street in Chester and browse in our refurbished Thrift Shop.
Our mailing address has changed to P. O. Box 302, Chester, VT 05143 and our phone number is 875-3236. We are open Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday and the hours are as follows:
Tuesday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Wednesday 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We also offer a Food Shelf and emergency assistance for those in need of help with rent, heat, and electric bills. The Center operates totally from donations from the many generous people in the community.
Our Thrift Shop has a totally new look and some great buys. A store-wide bag sale is scheduled for the entire month of September so come in and fill a bag for $2.
We welcome donations for the Thrift Shop as well as nonperishable food items for the Food Shelf and all can be dropped off during Thrift Shop hours. Cash donations are also gladly accepted and are put to good use in purchasing food for the Food Shelf and to helping those individuals who are having difficulty in paying their utilities, rent, or heating their home.
Shopping at Shaw's Market can also help the Center. Just go online to Shaw's and designate through the Shaw's Reward Program that a percentage of your purchase, when shopping on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, be given to Chester-Andover Family Center; our ID number is 49001021071.
