When this Occurs: Items are collected year round. There is an emphasis on collecting winter items from the middle of September through the middle of November. There is an emphasis on collecting blankets during November, December, and January for the House of Mercy.
Who Can Join: Everyone is welcome to participate. In addition to donating items, volunteers are also needed to sort the items and to deliver them.
