Get Involved

Current specific needs include:

  • Volunteers to sort used clothing.
  • Volunteers to network within the community to solicit donations and aid from local businesses.
  • Volunteers to help with fundraising events (food preparation, setup, cleanup, etc.).

Food, clothing, and furniture donations are accepted. Please see our donation guidelines or contact one of our drop off locations for more information.
