WHAT WE TAKE

Our clients need modest-sized practical pieces--picture what you would need if you were starting out fresh.

All donated items should be new or gently used. Please respect the dignity of our clients and donate only items that you would be comfortable giving to a friend or family member.

Our volunteers reserve the right to decline offered items at their discretion.
