Posted on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at 10:19 am

The Moore County Resource Center (MCRC), a one-stop location for people in need of assistance, is ready to open its doors for operation. You might recognize names such as the Attic Outlet, The Henry Center, The Good Samaritan, or the Salvation Army, these are all resource centers from neighboring communities which aid people in need. For several months several citizens have been working to create one of these resource centers for Moore County. There will be assistance with food, hygiene needs, gas for transportation and utilities assistance available to qualifying individuals. The MCRC has partnered with other local agencies to provide needed help to people of our community. The MCRC is located in the Moore County Health Facility (Health Department) on Majors Boulevard. The center will be open on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8 to 12 noon and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 3 to 6 pm. There will be an application to fill out, no personal information will be shared with any other agency. At this present time, the resource center is accepting applications for our angel-tree program, Moore County Christmas Stockings (formally known as Santa Stocking Stuffers). Applications can be picked up from and returned to the Moore County Resource Center beginning November 1, 2017. The deadline for returning the application is Friday, December 1 by 4 pm. A public meeting is slated for Thursday, November 16 beginning at 6:30 pm at the American Legion Building. The center’s board asks that a representative from all area churches, civic organizations and interested individuals please attend this informational meeting. If you have any questions, please call Peggy Gold at 931-759-7285.
