HURLEY RECOVERY CENTER STILL IN MIDDLE SCHOOL
WISE, Va. – The Hurley Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) is still in operation at the Hurley Middle School on Route 643. Volunteer services such as emergency food and clothing distribution have moved to a warehouse building in Grundy, but the Center will remain in the Hurley Middle School.
The Recovery Center is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. It will be open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.
