COVID-19 & Monkey Pox Safety Policies

Due to the ongoing pandemic and the rising threat of monkey pox, we are not accepting used clothing items at this time. Additionally, we are only allowing a limited amount of in-person volunteer opportunities and we are requiring that all volunteers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to volunteering on-site. Masks must be worn at all times, regardless of vaccination status. 

Thank you for helping us keep our young people safe!
