A few changes to Annie B's Rules: For cash donations: RECEIPTS WILL ONLY BE ISSUED Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8am-5pm (not between 1-2pm) and Tuesday and Thursday 1-4pm Please roll all coin. If you want copies of checks, please do so before bringing them to NVCF. We will not be able to make copies for you. Please bring in checks as you receive them or on a regular basis.
