Darlene Rogers

Hello Middleville my name is Darlene and I am excited to join this wonderful, informative group of caring individuals. I arrived in this area in 2004 and intend to remain as close to the coast as possible. My husband and I have been married for eight years and have a busy blended family of seven. Yes Seven! We have two daughters, three sons, a Poodle and a Rottweiler yet somehow we blend well. I guess that makes Nine! Each child participates in at least two extra- curricular activities,(athletics , social organizations or academic) which means we can tell you the best place to sit on any bleacher as well as which school has the best popcorn on the east coast. Our children range from 19 – 13 years old with completely different personalities. The oldest son is serving our country in the Army and our oldest daughter is in college. The youngest three are currently making career plans from high and middle school. Human service is my field of choice and miraculously completed a masters degree with my busy family schedule last year. I’m currently working in a Human service position with some of the best Marines and their families in the country. It is my pleasure to aide those that due to unforeseen circumstances, need a bit of assistance. My passions are spending time with my family, reading, writing, photography, sketching and cooking. I am looking forward to this new journey here in Middleville, so buckle up as we tour life as we know it.


They need a new home

We all have some items of clothes in our closets that need to go away, far away but for some reason we can’t seem to let them go.  Every once and a while we have to have a family closet cleaning to come to terms with letting go of those items that are just too small.   Well we found an alternative that helps others in the community that has been faced with an unexpected challenge.  The location is in New River shopping center and the store is “Finders Keepers”.  The store is one of the sources of funding for the domestic violence women’s shelter in our county.  They are able to house many mothers and their children with the money the items donated and sold on their behalf.

According to home ever after, clothing is personal and it’s easy to attach memories to items. Special occasion clothes, souvenirs clothes… these items may not look great or even fit you, yet they represent a memory you want to hold on to.  Clothing Donations Help the VVA, Whether you’re cleaning out your family’s closet in the spring, browsing through some outdated beachwear in the summer, making room for your children’s back-to-school clothes in the fall, or are in a generous and giving mood during the winter holiday season, you might consider donating your unwanted clothes to a cause that supports veterans.

Simply gather all the clothes you would like to donate, place them inside a box or bag, and schedule a donation pick up though our online form. Leave the items along the curb in front of your home or office, and our drivers will pick them up — rain or shine! They can also leave you a tax deduction form to be filled out at your convenience. This way, you’re not only organizing your closet but also helping families in need.
