THAYER -- The help organization Ozark Volunteers recently has had a problem with area residents dumping off unwanted items. The volunteers are asking those who are doing this to please stop.
"Do not dump garbage, broken couches, broken chairs. We can't haul this stuff off," one of the volunteers said.
"If this continues we will be shut down. We can't have garbage outside our building right here in downtown Thayer. We want to keep our city clean and we want to keep this shop open for the community. Broken furniture cannot help people in need," volunteers said.
Ozark Volunteers is located at Second and Chestnut streets in Thayer and provides assistance to people who need help such as those who have lost jobs or lost homes due to fire.
