    • Sister Norris, YES YES YES! Since we are only “open” on Friday afternoons right now, it would be ideal to get fresh food from New Seasons Friday morning. We have plenty of people to help haul a refrigerator, just let us know when and where. And we can definitely get you the receipts for your taxes. Hope to see you Wednesday to talk more, thank you!! -Jenny
