Tukwila Children’s Clothing Bank

Sorting and Organizing Needed for Local Children’s Clothing Bank 
Come help Tukwila Children’s Clothing Bank sort, organize, stock shelves and racks of their newly donated children’s clothing items for the clothing bank. This is a flexible project where you can schedule a date and time that works for you and or your group.  This could be a great youth project as weekday evening hours or weekends could be scheduled based on need. There is one standing routine time that organizing takes place which is the 2nd Saturday of every month from 9am to noon in case you want to join in or make it a routine monthly project. The clothing is used for any children in need within the community but also helps aid in time of tragedies such as home or apartment fires, homelessness and refugee resettling.  To coordinate and schedule a date and time, contact Katrina Dohn at katrinadohn@gmail.com
