Montgomery Locals 7.29

By Staff | Jul 29, 2020

The last few months have been hard on a lot of people. If you or someone you love has been struggling to make ends meet, the Angel Odyssey Cupboard is open to everyone who needs it. The bright red cupboard is located on Henry Hand Drive by the fire department garage. Its shelves are filled with non-perishable food and toiletries.

The Angel Odyssey Cupboard is also open to donations. Anyone who would like to make a contribution to it can pick up a few items the next time they go the store and then take it down to the cupboard. The only request to the public is to please try to keep it organized.

The beautiful thing about the cupboard is that it’s open to anyone at any time. There is no need to register, and no specific hours or days that limit its availability. People are invited to take exactly what they need when they need it.
