SAVE THE DATE FOR THE 2014 GIFTS FOR THE HOMELESS ANNUAL USED CLOTHING DRIVE
Our clothing drive will take place this year from Friday, December 5 through Sunday, December 7, 2014. We are beginning to gear-up for the drive and hope you will too by signing-up to volunteer online, starting to set aside your intended used clothing and household donations (we unfortunately cannot accept them until the weekend of the drive), and spreading the word to all who you know would love to support and volunteer with us (employers, law firms and other legally-focused organizations, non-profits, coworkers, friends, family, neighbors and others). More details are available over here. Come join us for what is expected to be another successful year!
