Have you donated some clothing lately? I volunteered last week at Homeless Connect 13, a one-day event providing services from haircuts to medical, dental, and legal to Denver homeless. I worked at the discharge station helping to check people out; at the time I left just past midday, about 300 people had been served. Just next to my station were several expansive tables with free clothing. What I loved seeing was that there was no
go-between--the clothes went directly to people who need them. Many of the participants were seeking coats, jackets, and backpacks.
I'll be looking for more ways to get clothing directly to those who need it.
Those wishing to give clothing to flood victims in Colorado can donate to
The Bridge House in Boulder, a day shelter and social service provider for the homeless, which is seeking donations of shoes, socks, and outerwear. It's located at 1120½ Pine Street, Boulder.
Signature Offset, a printing company, is also collecting food and clothing at its Broomfield location at 224 Commerce Street for distribution to flood victims.
Here I am with other volunteers at the discharge station. I'm the one sitting at the table with the big smile & shoulder-length hair. You can see the clothing tables behind us.
T-shirt Sunday Tees
This is the t-shirt we wore for the Project Connect event. It was so helpful that the shirt was bright since the participants could easily tell whom to turn to when they needed help.
