Operations Manager Kim Whisenhunt says, “We would welcome any knitted items you would like to donate, we can always use mittens and hats for adults and children and afghans come in handy for transients or new families in need. We are here every day of the week so feel free to drop off whatever you would like. Ring the doorbell if the door is locked…we are open to clients on Mondays and Thursday but here the rest of week.”
