You may wonder if donating things like socks and underwear actually makes a difference in our program. The answer is YES! Of course, it is your financial support that funds our work, but since we provide everything to our clients free of charge, your material donations mean that we can concentrate on our programs and not have to spend time, effort, and money shopping for everyday supplies.
