We appreciate the great generosity our donors showed when giving outdoor winter wear this year. We are no longer in need of heavy winter jackets, coats, hats, gloves and scarves. We will still accept winter clothing through February 28. Thank you.

Goods are being donated to Joseph’s Coat at an unprecedented rate. Every inch of our storage and sorting space is overflowing. Many donors have told us that they are dissatisfied with other organizations that sell used goods for profit.
It is wonderful that so many people believe in our mission of providing goods to the needy at no cost; however, we are a very small organization and cannot serve as a replacement for large organizations. Please understand that we appreciate all of the support, but we have one full-time employee. Our operations depend on volunteers – NOT employees.
The amount of space that we can fill with donations is restricted by fire code. We will be fined if we do not adhere to this code. If you arrive and see a sign saying we are full, we apologize. We do not control the amount of donations we receive.
You can help us by:
• only donating clothing that is in season -- right now we are accepting winter
• only donating clothing items that are CLEAN and in great shape -- no broken zippers, torn/stained clothing, etc.
• only donating clothing that is less than five years old
• only donating household items that aren’t broken or missing parts – we also do not accept TVs or electronics or furniture
• only donating toys that have all of the pieces/parts
VOLUNTEERING IS A REWARDING WAY TO HELP THOSE IN NEED. IF YOU WANT TO HELP, VOLUNTEER!

No donation is too small! #doinggoodintheneighborhood #YourNeighborhoodRealtor #GivingTuesday2021
