News for Friday 08/19

Did you know?

  • Arriving before noon is usually not a good idea. Here are 3 reasons why:
    • Because our volunteers need the time before noon to set up the site.
    • There are often shorter waiting times after 12 pm
    • ¬†There is a better chance to find items after 12 pm, because we have had the chance to process some of the incoming donations.
