Halfway through the heat wave

Good News: We are halfway through the heat wave!
Bad news: We are only halfway through the heat wave.

Today will bring the highest heat indices of this stretch. Continue to exercise heat safety and check on the elderly, young, and those with breathing issues.

Fortunately, a cold front will push through the area Sunday bringing a chance for thunderstorms ( a few possibly strong) but more importantly an end to the dangerous heat. Hang in there everyone!

News from the Pantry Thrift Store in Butler

We are so frustrated with the deadbeat thieves stealing from us! 

We are locking the donation building but unfortunately thieves are stealing from the donations that are left outside after business hours.

So, it would be helpful if you bring your donations between 9:30am and 4:30pm during our Mon-Sat business days. 

This allows us time to get the donations locked up. Thanks! - Courtesy of Pantry Thrift Store Facebook Page
