Women’s clothing needed

Urgent need from the warehouse – we are extremely low on women’s long sleeve tops, our bins are nearly empty! Every size needed from Small – 4X welcome. Linda is pictured next to one of our almost empty bins of clothes. We are providing 50-80 clients a week with clothing at this time and as soon as the clothing donations come in they are going out with the next client. If you can help out with even one long sleeve shirt we would be grateful.
