March 1st marks the first anniversary of the fire that destroyed the Salem WEST facility in Deerwood.  One year later the outreach program is in a new home in the former Stenerson Lumberyard on Highway 6 between Deerwood and Crosby.  The facility has been remodeled to meet the needs of the program.  Salem continues to express their gratitude for the support of our community during these challenging times.
 
One small way that Salem is showing its appreciate is by donating the former site to Habitat for Humanity with the plans for construction of a new home to begin in May.  In the midst of this catastrophe, many blessings have been received.
 
The larger facility has enabled Salem WEST to serve more people each month.  That has stretched our resources and we are looking for the following:
 
     Beds:  twin, full and queen size.
Bed Frames.
     Dressers.
Sofas.
Loveseats.
Pots and pans.
Toasters.
Microwaves.
Household items.
 
 
 
We are seeking new volunteers, particularly to assist with delivery and pick up of donations.  If you are interested in volunteering or have any of the above items to donate,
place contact Salem WEST as 218-534-4962
or west@salemdwd.org.
