The Main Place provides new clothing and personal items for homeless teens, victims of fire, domestic abuse, those who are poor, in need and on the verge of homelessness.
Impact: The Main Place serves as a retail store without a cash register, filling a need for clothing for the homeless and in-need. Not with someone's cast-offs, but trendy age-appropriate, well-fitting outfits, which removes financial burden, provides dignity, allows young people to better "fit in", raises self-esteem, helps them finish school or get a job and become a productive member of the community. We are showing love, raising the bar, giving hope and attempting to break the cycle of despair and dispassion.
Volunteer Responsibilities: Clothing drives - new teen-friendly clothing, primarily. Also sorting, folding, hanging, boxing, labeling, merging, inventorying of existing merchandise. Hygiene Products - drives for same; as well as filling bags with products, sorting, labeling, listing Image Consultants - helping build outfits for our clients (if we have appointments the day/times of volunteer service)
