AdvoCats need help moving

June 22, 2015 by Phil Major

The Aledo Children's AdvoCats were informed this morning that extra time they were promised for moving the Clothes Closet out of 9901 East Bankhead is no longer an option.
Check their Facebook page for the latest updates on where and when volunteers are needed. The entire facility must be vacated by the end of the month, but the new home near downtown Aledo won't be ready in time, so everything is having to go into storage (thanks to the generosity of the Aledo UMC).
They need volunteers and especially vehicles to haul items.
The Center of Hope is also in the process of moving out of its adjacent facility and consolidating at its Weatherford location.
