Chester-Andover Family Center

Our Mission

“We make a difference in our community by providing resources for financial assistance,
supplemental, nutritional food, affordable clothing and household goods.”


Our Thrift Shop is closed, and we are not accepting Thrift Shop Donations.

We need your help. The Family Center relies on Thrift Shop Sales revenue, fundraisers and generous donors to support food purchases for our food shelf and provide financial assistance to struggling families. With no revenue coming in due to the temporary closing of our Thrift Shop and the cancellation of fundraising events, we are making a special request to friends of the Chester Andover Family Center for monetary donations. Our goal is to maintain our ability to provide food and financial assistance to residents during these challenging times.

Please donate via PayPal by clicking the button below or mail your check to the Chester-Andover Family Center at PO Box 302, Chester, VT 05143.

Our Food Shelf will continue to provide food on Thursdays and Fridays for our Food Shelf recipients. Until further notice, recipients may pick up a pre-packed box of food in our parking lot, during regular Food Shelf hours; Thursdays from 1-5 and Fridays from 10-2. Pick-up instructions are posted in our parking lot. For Financial Assistance, all the center, 802-875-3236, and leave a message that includes your name, a number by which we can reach you and a short description of your needs. Phone messages are monitored every day and a volunteer will get back to you for a phone interview.
