If you are planning to purchase and donate new items, please know that quality is more valuable to our clients than quantity. Five $20 pairs of gloves that will keep people warm for several winters are more useful than 20 pairs of $5 gloves that may not serve their purpose as well or for as long. If you are planning to purchase new items, feel free to reach out to us beforehand and ask what items would help our clients the most at this time.
