For larger donations (or for items we cannot accept), we have a voucher system worked out with Community Kindness 
@  1315 Adams Ave

Community Kindness will add your donations to their general merchandise, then they will offer our guests

Essential Vouchers as needed.

In short, even if your exact donation may not go directly to a warming station guest, it will be used and shared in the best possible way.

This system allows guests to shop for the clothes they

truly need in a setting designed to handle the organization, sanitation, and sales of second-hand goods.

Thank you for your cooperation
