The HUB, located in the Clay Senior and Community Service’s building, is looking at an uncertain future as plans to remove them are up in the air at the next board meeting. This came to light on January 21, and the reasoning given to Operators Josh Shamblin and Vanessa Dunnigan were due to conditions at the Nutrition Center, which is owned by the Clay County Commission.
The HUB’s mission has always been to provide excellent food, as well as jobs to the citizens of Clay County. Not just jobs, but jobs that provide hope, meaning, and skills to those that need it most. Not only does the HUB provide jobs for several high school students, but they also provide employment to people with disabilities. They strive to employ both groups to provide opportunities that ae several lacking in the community. Without this town location, the HUB would be forced to stop providing those mentoring programs.
You can do your part to make your voice heard and SAVE THE HUB. Contact the Clay County Commission and Clay Senior and Community Services to express any concerns in removing them from their current location.
