Weather Policy

As many members know, last Thursday got quite dramatic at the depots around 5 p.m. — Melrose even lost a few tents! Thankfully no one was hurt. When the weather is horrendous, we are still distributing at the depots. The depot coordinator can make his or her own call about the safety of being outside. If they feel unsafe, because the rain is too heavy, or lightning gets too close, or the wind too gusty, they may choose to close up. If this happens, we will contact those who haven’t picked up yet, and make the goods available at an offsite location (another members’ home, or other location). So go get your share. If you are unsure about the weather, feel free to call 1-877-332-3276 to speak with your coordinator to see what the plan is.
