The hanger hook should be pointing left. Hang clothes on hanger and if needed secure with a safety pin.


    – For receiving clothing needs to be sorted by size and sex. NO Exceptions! Items will be checked at the door at the time of receiving. All other items other than clothing should also be grouped together i.e. shoes in a bag, toys in a bag, etc. This is very helpful during receiving.

    Items other than clothing:


    - Take your tag, punch a hole at the top, take a zip tie and go through the tag and attach to the shoes. Shoes must be zip tied together. You can reinforce the tag with a small piece of packing tape. Then put your shoes in the appropriate side of ziplock bag. Do not tape the top of the bag. We want your best pairs of shoes, 5 is the limit, more than 5 must have donate on the tag. Contributor Training Videos
