The Interfaith Clothing Centers provide clothing/home goods free of charge to low income County residents. Please put items in a plastic bag that has been secured at the top.

A Wider Circle
We are happy to continue our partnership with A Wider Circle by hosting our twentieth event to collect usable items for families in need. The mission of A Wider Circle is to end poverty. A Wider Circle provides basic need items to families transitioning out of shelters or simply living without life’s necessities. In 2013, A Wider Circle furnished the homes of 4,250 families, all free of charge. They also launched their new Center for Professional Development, which provides the job skills courses, mentoring, computer training, and professional attire and accessories that our most vulnerable neighbors need to make the journey back to work – and out of poverty.
If you have furniture or household items in gently-used condition that you would like to donate, please bring them to the Lawton Center parking lot on Saturday, April 5 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Families are always in need of beds (including mattresses that are free of rips and stains), dressers, tables and chairs, living room furniture, bedding, dish sets, baby items, professional clothing, and children’s clothing up to size 4T. If you have items that are too large to bring to the drop-off, please contact A Wider Circle at 301-608-3504 or firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] and they would be happy to schedule a pick-up date.
