In Memory/Honor of Donations
Homeless neighbors have little options for clothing. When clothes become soiled or wet, they must be discarded. Also, there are certain clothing items that simply cannot or will not be worn by those carrying back packs, and those with no homes, washing machines or clothes closets.
To be able to freely give proper clothing that can be worn by the homeless in Knoxville, these suggestions should help you when preparing a donation to Lost Sheep Ministry. We appreciate your desire to help those who are in need of clothing, and we thank you.
