TENTS & SLEEPING BAGS
The Community Store makes gently used or new tents, tarps and sleeping bags available to people experiencing homelessness starting on May 1, when the local homeless shelter closes for the season. If you would like to purchase these items to donate, we’ve created a wishlist to make it easier. [You can learn about how to make your Amazon purchases generate more funds for the Center here.]
