4. Do we accept gently worn clothing?

Due to storage constraints and fluctuating members' needs, we have to be very selective with the type of clothing we accept. If you have gently worn clothing that you would like to donate to The Gathering Place, please contact Program Specialist Leah Weisgal at (303) 996-9046 or to see if we can accept your donation.
