Low-income residents are provided with new and gently used clothing and small household necessities. A career corner is available for those looking for career related clothing. Men’s, women’s, infant’s and children’s clothing is available. A birthday room is also available for low-income parents to select a NEW birthday gift item for their children age 12 and under.
