Check closets and drawers at home for new and like-new clothing, shoes, books, and gear that have been outgrown or replaced. When you donate clothes to people in need, you have the opportunity not only to provide warmth and comfort but also to elevate a person’s self-worth. Donated items can be dropped at our office Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am-1pm. We're located at 509B Park Street.
