They Need Us…We Need You

Sep 6, 2010  |     |   General

As I walk through the Timberlake Outreach Center, I can’t help but notice how our donors are really blessing us with their gently used clothing. It’s awesome seeing all these items ready to be hung up and put out in the Kings Kloset shopping area.

I am a little sad, though, to say that I think I saw some of the same piles there yesterday! We need more volunteers…a LOT more!

As the weather turns cooler (soon!), more folks will be coming in to shop for warm clothing and coats for their families and we need MORE volunteers to come and help us Sort, Organize and Shelve donations.

It breaks my heart to see a single mother looking for warm clothes and coats for her children and not finding anything. However, we have boxes of clothing in the back that have not been sorted and put out yet because we don’t have enough help to get it done.

Would you consider volunteering some of your valuable time (alone or with a group) Sorting, Organizing and Shelving donations? To volunteer, go to https://www.opendoormission.org/ and click on Volunteer to get started!

Hoping to see you soon,
Amy Harvey
Timberlake Outreach Center Assistant Director
