*August 2022 Furniture & Clothing Notes (Please Read)

Due to storage concerns, we are accepting limited furniture by appointment only. Please contact Beth Conner at econner@wr.org to inquire.

With the exception of men's and women's coats during the winter months, we can no longer accept clothing. We suggest bringing clothing to South Rock Island Township, where many of our clients now visit (Closet2Closet is NOT accepting clothing for our clients at this time).
