Our sorting facility Donation Station will be extending operating hours from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. effective Monday, July 25.
The additional operating hour will make it easier for the community to drop off their items after work. The decision is also a safety measure to prevent donation theft from items left in the evening.
Donation Station houses donated goods such as clothing, housewares, linens, toys and books given by the community to provide assistance to those in the midst of job loss, illness or other emergency.
Your item donation gives hope when families wonder how they’ll be able to afford back-to-school clothes, work boots or interview attire. The items also supply our Transitional Housing program with goods on hand for those seeking shelter.
Many donations are funneled into our resale operations, which generate revenue to continue GRACE programming. The multitudes of items we receive require stewardship, strategy, and elbow grease to ensure the products are directed where they will be most useful.
Businesses, Church congregations and civic groups find great satisfaction after volunteering at Donation Station, and many individuals are needed to support our resale staff on a weekly or part time basis.
No retail experience is required to volunteer, and all volunteers will receive ample training. If you’re interested in learning more, contact Volunteer Manager Lara Hohweiler.
