The Donation Center is a vital and active support ministry to directly benefit those in need by providing the basic material necessities for everyday life with grace, compassion, and non-judgment.   Our goal is to make gently used clothing and household items easily available to individuals and families who are financially challenged, all for the purpose of building relationships. The Community Closet is now open to the public. Donation bins are located on the back side of the building.    
Serving opportunities: 
 Volunteers from area churches to staff the center, build relationships, gather, sort, organize goods and pick-up large items from donors.
