Policies for Donations Supporting Migrants & Asylum Seekers

Thank you for your interest in donating items to support our efforts. Due to limited personnel and space capacity, we can only receive items the day before they are distributed at our Monday Clothing Resource fair. Our next dates to accept items are:

  • Sunday August 20, 12-1pm
  • Sunday September 10, 12:30-1:30pm

We take items on designated days when we have a crew of volunteers to receive and sort them. Want to volunteer? Go to our Lotsa Helping Hands page to learn more and signup. 

Unable to bring items on a Sunday but still want to donate? With prior notice we can also accept donations on the Mondays (8-9:15am) that we have our clothing resource fair. Contact Susie to request this with 3 days’ notice.
