A NOTE ABOUT DONATIONS

We depend on lots of donated clothing (NEW only) and supplies to keep the shelter running and our men warm and dry.    Sometimes we get donations that we cannot use and then several of us must go through them and “regift” them to other agencies.  Please be sure to let your churches know what we do and do not need this year! Also, it is much easier for us if items are donated in their original packaging instead of repackaged in sets.

All contributions are tax deductible.
