Last spring the opportunity to purchase our building’s upstairs presented itself, and in the fall we acquired the space. For many years we have been making the best of the limited space in which we serve our clients, but due to a steady increase in the services we provide, it has become more and more difficult with each passing year. The Window has made it its mission to extend a helping hand for the past 50 years, and daily we witness the struggle our clients face trying to provide the basic necessities. Last year the Pantry served 16,060 individuals; and between Meals on Wheels, Lunch and the Lunch Box program, Katie’s Kitchen prepared 27,455 meals. Our Clothes Closet distributed clothing to 2,489 individuals, and 652 individuals utilized the shower. We are optimistic that by expanding our space to include the upstairs, and with the development of a new floor plan for our programs downstairs, we will serve those in need within our community much more efficiently.
