    Do you have a printable version so I can pass them out at church? Don’t see one for this month. Thanks and thanks for representing the King so well in caring for the needy of our community.

    I have a large Samsung TV (40″?) that I would like to donate to your organization. I am unable to move the TV myself, as it is very heavy. I would like to schedule a pick-up time, if it is available.

    I have quite a few gently used women’s tennis shoes that I want to donate, but it’s not on your needs list. Do you still want them?

    Thank you to Joy and Karen and all others out there who so generously donate.
    Donations can be dropped off at our Distribution Center, 401 NW Norris from 8 to 3 Monday – Friday and from 8 to Noon on Saturday. Any other times you may take donations to the main shelter at 600 N. Kansas just be aware that space is limited there and they can not accept large items.
