When clothing comes in that does not meet our high quality standards, we donate it to local organizations doing amazing things such as The Living Room, COTS Work Ready Apparel Shop, Redwood Gospel Mission, and most recently the Red Cross in response to the devastating Sonoma country wildfires.
The Living Room: A Santa Rosa based day services for women and children who are homeless. The Living Room provides resources to these individuals and parent programs. By working with other local organizations, they strive to provide a “safe and comfortable environment during the day when shelters are closed.” thelivingroomsc.org
COTS Work Ready Apparel Shop: A free store which offers work ready apparel to individuals suffering from homelessness and/or economic insecurity. The store’s mission is to provide clothing so those suffering can be work ready. This is only one of the many programs that COTS offers in Petaluma. Find out more information here: cots.org
Redwood Gospel Mission: Provides support and jobs to those suffering from homelessness. srmission.org
Red Cross: The nationally recognized Red Cross provided emergency assistance to Sonoma county during the October 2017 wildfires. As part of our community responsibility we donated clothing, food and non-perishable items that were distributed to our local community.
Redwood Food Bank:
On the Plus Side encourages their employees to stay active in the community. Most recently we have been volunteering at the Redwood Food Bank, a local organization which provides food to needy individuals and families. refb.org
