GIVEAWAY COLLECTION DATES:
Our annual Giveaway is a simple idea: connect the quality used goods that people no longer need directly with people who need them.
On the two days prior to the Giveaway, we accept donations of housewares, linens, seasonally-appropriate clothing, children's toys and games, even small appliances and furnishings. We sort the items and put them on display.
In the meantime, invitations are sent to local social service agencies for distribution to their clients. For example, a person may recently have moved from homelessness into a subsidized apartment but has no way to furnish her new home. As long as they receive an invitation through an agency working with them, they are invited to come to the Giveaway and take whatever they need, absolutely free of charge.
At our last Giveaway over 250 clients of more than a dozen agencies were helped. ("Before" and "after" pictures of a Giveaway are to the right.) (The Giveaway is on hold as we recover from the fire that destroyed our sanctuary.) Please see our Spring Clothing Drive.
