As we say goodbye to summer and welcome in a new season. You should start seeing many new clothing items. At this time we will no longer accept Mens and Womens summer clothing. We will however accept any kids clothing no matter the season.
We are thankful to the Kiwanis Group of Greece and Assemblymen Josh Jensen for the backpacks and school supplies. We were also able to provide socks and underwear to our students due the generosity of the Family of Jim and Betty Pierce, St. Johns Parishioners and St Marks Parishionioners. On behalf of all our clients we are truly thankful.
Beginning Thursday, September 7th we will open up from 10-12 in the morning. This addition to our schedule will continue as long as we have the volunteers.
We are now starting to collect fall and winter donations. We will stop accept spring and summer with the exception of kids clothing. Please place your fall and winter items in a 13 gallon white bag and drop off when open. We ae open:
