West Alexander Borough purchased the former West Alexander School Building in 2004. Initially, West Alexander Borough provided funding to cover all utilities and up-front improvement costs to create a presentable facility for our community. Since then, West Alexander and Donegal Township merged into one municipality in 2009. Additional improvements have been funded through grants, special events, rental of the gymnasium, and a solid funding base provided by Donegal Township.
In September of 2004, the Community Center became the site of McGuffey Communities That Care, an After-School Program, which is held Monday through Friday 3:30 pm to 6:00 p.m. during the school year. In 2015, the West Alexander Presbyterian Church took over the program.
In 2006, the entire lower level of the building was renovated and became the offices and warehouse of R G Sales, Inc. In 2014, R G Sales Inc. sold to Sterling Seal & Supply. In recent years, three classrooms have been renovated on the second floor, and are being used by the after-school program and a privately-operated pre-school program, Miss Danielle’s Pre-School. Another classroom was converted into two new restrooms, and an office into commercial rental space. The West Alexander Presbyterian Church operates a Clothes Closet on the second floor, providing clothing to needy families in the area. The West Alexander United Methodist Church uses two updated basement rooms for a mission project. The main floor of the building is occupied by Donegal Township, which includes the Secretary/Treasurer, Police Department, Township Supervisors, and two public meeting rooms.
Other updates include a refinished gym, floor, paint on all walls and ceiling, updated restrooms, tile floor in the second level hallway and restrooms, new windows and lentils and brick work, new security doors on the first floor, new key-card entry system for the township offices and classroom areas, repaired fire escape and emergency lighting, upgraded electrical for utility room, air conditioning and heating of the gym and other areas in the building, new basketball backboards, modern aluminum bleachers, and wall safety mats on the basketball court. The front parking lot underwent paving and line painting in 2013 at a cost of about $35,000. In November 2015, the exterior of the WACC underwent repairs and was also painted. In December 2015, there was a PA system installed in the gymnasium. February 2016, there were repairs made to the walls in the gymnasium and some painting was done.
