The Chester Andover Family Center is hosting a Community Service Event for area teens to find their perfect Prom outfit!
On Wednesday, April 4, 2018, the CAFC will open its doors from 3-7PM for Prom Shopping. We have a large selection of Prom Wear for girls and guys, including over 100 dresses, suits and tuxedos. All are either new or in “like new” condition. You can also shop for accessories such as shoes, shirts, ties, handbags and jewelry to complete your “look”.
All teen shoppers can enter a FREE raffle to win prom flowers or manicures gift certificates donated by local businesses.
At a suggested donation of $20, prom-goers can put together a dress or tux outfit with all the accessories. Please join us on April 4, from 3-7, for a fun and affordable shopping spree. We will have the music going and dressing rooms set up.
The Chester Andover Family Center is located at 908 VT 103 in Chester. Follow us on Facebook, or call the Center at 802-875-3236
The Chester Andover Family Center is collecting Prom Wear for a special public service event to be held on April 4, 2018, prior to local High School proms. Every teen deserves to attend his or her prom dressed in beautiful, affordable prom wear.
At our second annual Prom Shopping event last April, teens from Chester and surrounding communities converged on the CAFC to shop for the perfect “Prom” outfit. The shop was filled with the sounds and sights of teens trying on prom wear and finding accessories to complete their outfits. For $20, a complete new or nearly new outfit including dress or suit, shirts, shoes and accessories could be purchased.
Now we need to replenish our prom wear inventory: dresses, tuxedos, dress shirts, ties and dress shoes for girls and guys. Our goal is to be fully stocked with Prom Wear by March 1. Please call your friends, search your closets and help us provide a unique shopping experience for Chester area teens.
Last year, students from GMUHS in Chester, Springfield HS, Bellows Falls HS, Black River HS in Ludlow and Kurn Hattin found the perfect prom outfit at the Family Center. Help us make our Third Annual Prom Shopping Event bigger and better.
The Thrift Shop is open to receive Prom Wear donations during regular business hours, Thursdays and Fridays from 10-4 and Saturdays, 10-3.
We are located in Chester at 908 VT103S.
Do you struggle to feed your family? Do you sometimes have to choose between paying a utility bill and buying food? Do you know someone who could use a helping hand keeping nutritional food on the table? We can help.
The Chester-Andover Family Center Food Shelf, located at 908 VT Route 103 South in Chester, is available to residents of Chester or Andover who are in need of food assistance.
Come by during our regular hours to complete a simple Intake Form and begin getting food. The only requirement is proof of residency, so be sure to bring your electric bill or rental lease. All personal information is kept strictly confidential.
Food Shelf hours are Thursdays from 2:00 to 6:00, and Fridays from 10:00 to 2:00. Recipients may “shop” once a month for food at the food shelf. Additionally, they may come in every Friday from 10-2 to pick up fresh produce and bread.
