The John 3:16 Community Resource Center in Roanoke Rapids will open on Friday.

On Thursday at 4 p.m. the Roanoke Valley Chamber of Commerce will hold a ribbon-cutting and reception for the organization’s newest location at the intersection of Roanoke Avenue and Highway 158 in the former Angel’s Closet building.

Donations will be accepted beginning August 2. Essential programs, providing clothing, household goods, and food pantry to meet the needs of families in the community referred by social service agencies, churches or schools will continue at no charge to the family. 

The center will serve as a community resource outlet for families with programs that include school supplies, parenting supports, and Christmas outreach as well as provide a meeting space for community and support groups. 

The location will be open by appointment to referred families in need Mondays from noon to 4:30 p.m. and Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The center will be open to the general public to shop Wednesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

Cash and cards are the accepted forms of payment. 

On the first Saturday of each month, beginning in October, the center will partner with local non-profit groups to co-host a $5 bag day sale in which half of the proceeds of that day’s sales go directly to the partner group. 

All proceeds from any sale of items from the location will go back into the community, supporting programs to benefit families in Halifax, Warren and Northampton counties. 

“The John 3:16 team is truly grateful for the time, talent and contributions donated by its volunteers and board members, volunteers from Angel’s Closet, local church groups and all the new folks responding to the need to help in making the enormous progress throughout this entire opening process possible,” the center said. “We still need volunteers.”
