As the winter season settles upon us, volunteers in the Free Store are discovering that many of our guests lack the essential outerwear necessary to avoid frostbite and hypothermia—coats, boots, hats, gloves, and mittens. Almost every day that we’re open, we run out of these much needed items. Please check your closets to see if you have any extra winter gear just taking up space.
Basically, we need all kinds of winter gear—hats for men, mittens for kids, coats for women. Please place any items you’re able to donate in the red bin by the welcome desk, or deliver them directly from your car by driving to the loading dock and ringing the bell. Someone will come out to help you during business hours Monday through Thursday and surrounding the worship services on Saturday and Sunday.
