WCRW Charity Drive

2010 April 26

In honor of Mother’s Day, WCRW is collecting donations for two different charities located here in Washington County through April until our next meeting on May 15th. Please contact WCRW officers if you have donations that you need to have picked up, otherwise please bring your donations to our meeting on Saturday, May 15th at the Lake Elmo Inn. Officers will deliver the items later that day. The first is Dawn’s Closet which is part of Valley Outreach. The second is the St. Croix Valley Lifecare Center.

Dawn’s Closet

Dawn’s Closet provides clothing, accessories, and household essentials free of charge for work, school and everyday to men, women and children of all ages and all sizes in need who live in Washington County and surrounding border communities in eastern Ramsey County and western Wisconsin. We currently are serving over 200 families each month in Dawn’s Closet.

How You Can Be Involved

Dawn’s Closet accepts donations of gently used, clean, quality men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and accessories for all occasions, in all sizes and for all ages.

They also accept gently used, clean sets of sheets, quilts, comforters, blankets, kitchen and bath linens, sets of dishes, glassware, and flatware, kitchen utensils, cookware, infant care items, and gently used, operational small household appliances (e.g. small microwave ovens, blenders, mixers, toasters, toaster ovens, crock pots, irons, etc.)

Because they have limited space, we cannot accept donations of used toys, knick knacks, electronic equipment, or furniture.

Dawn’s Closet operates with the support of volunteers who sort and stock donations and assist clients when they come to select clothing and household essentials.

All of the items that the St. Croix Valley LifeCare Center provides to our clients are donated gifts – straight from you to them! We welcome your donations and encourage you to visit our center to learn more.
