Project Safe is so grateful for everyone who chooses to donate to us. Our clients can get needed items at no cost from the thrift store and proceeds from sales to the general public directly support our mission to end domestic violence.

With the new hours and the store being closed Sunday and Monday, people are dumping bags of donations and furniture, stacking them several feet high, blocking the doors and sidewalk. While the store is closed, people rifle through the bags and steal the donations or they often get ruined by weather and are soggy messes that cannot be salvaged. And even though Project Safe works hard to recycle unsalable items, we can’t recycle wet, mildew ridden clothing. The donations you make do not make it to the shelves and ultimately, don’t benefit Project Safe.

To ensure that your donations benefit Project Safe, please only donate when the Thrift Store doors are open. The hours are Tuesday-Sat 12 pm-5 pm. Due to new protocols, we may need to limit donations and will post on social media. Calling before dropping off is a great way to ensure that staff is available and able to accept your donation.

Self care has become a buzzword that encompasses a lot of different things, from meditation to spa days, and it looks different for everyone. Whatever method of self care you prefer, it’s important to remember is self care is not selfish, and when you take care of yourself, you can have healthy relationships with those around you.

Pushing or breaking boundaries, isolating you from friends and family, and dismissing your self care methods are signs of an unhealthy relationship. If you are worried that you’re in an unhealthy relationship, reach out to us and talk to an advocate 24/7 on our free, confidential hotline.
