Clothing & Personal Hygiene
Clothing and personal hygiene donations are greatly appreciated. The Gateway Center has a clothes closet for participants who come to the center and need clothing and hygiene products. The staff do not have time to re-washed items and pre-clean them, so please make sure items are reusable and clean. Clothing should be free from large rips and tears.
- Women's and children's clothing are accepted.
- Young boy's clothing is especially appreciated.
- Personal hygiene items are accepted (shampoo, soap, toothbrush, etc.)
Small electronic devices in working order are also accepted. Cell phones are particularly helpful because anyone can dial 911 in case of an emergency for free, even an old cell phone with no service plan. Read the article in the New York Times - Old Cell Phones Can Still Call 911 - NYTimes.com
- Cell phones - can be old, but must have working battery pack
- MP3 players
