LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – The WAFER food pantry is back to full service after flood damage cut their service in half last week.
Workers helped move food from a separate warehouse into the facility just off of the causeway on Monday. Restoration crews also completed their work, getting rid of all of the mold developed from the flood damage and removing worn out dry wall—one week after having to get rid of all the carpet.
The building is open, but additional changes are in store. “Now it's putting things back together and now that it's dry, we can move ahead with putting in different flooring. We're not going to get carpeting this time, we are going to go ahead and do tile so if we have an issue again, we don't have the same problems like we did with the carpeting,” WAFER Executive Director Erin Waldhart said.
Waldhart said they hope to replace drywall this week, and new tile is probably a “few weeks” away.
