I walked in to the Seattle office this morning to find our Glove and Mitten Box for Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) full of mittens and gloves! I’m going to need a bigger box seeing that we still have to 3 weeks until we deliver them.
Each month DESC has an item on their wishlist that they request for donation. This helps keep things organized for them. October is Mitten and Glove donation month which is perfect, seeing that it’s expected to be an extra cold winter.
So far, we have a box in Olympia and in Seattle that are filling up with lots of mittens and gloves. The Dollar Tree and Target both have some really affordable gloves so we were able to get lots of brand new ones, although slightly-used ones are acceptable too.
This is open to anyone who wants to help out; employees, customers or non-customers. Just stop by one of our locations:
Olympia 3425 Stoll Rd. SE; 98501. Seattle 309 S. Cloverdale St.; 98108. It’s best to call first to make sure someone is available to accept your donation. If you are from the Portland or Southern Oregon area and would like to donate, give us a call and we will make arrangements for one our staff to pick it up!
