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. Please feel free to contact us and ask what items would help our clients the most at this time.
