Spreading Threads Clothing Bank for Host Families Expands Site | Giving
Arizona Daily Star
Spreading Threads Clothing Bank, a non-profit organization that provides free clothing to children in foster care in the Tucson area, has grown.
In February, the clothing bank expanded its space from 1,400 square feet to a total of 2,800 square feet. To do this, he took over an adjacent suite in the building at 1870 W. Prince Road.
The expansion allowed Spreading Threads to provide a designated donation area for toys, new clothing, school uniforms and school supplies. It also allowed the non-profit organization to add a second bathroom as well as a dedicated break area for volunteers.
The original space is intended for donations of used clothing as well as a baby room, toilets and a reception area with books. Information is also available for foster, parentage and adoptive families for other community resources available in the Tucson area.
“We are excited about our expansion as it will allow us to serve more foster and adoptive children and their families at the same time,” said Michele Wright, Managing Director and Co-Founder of Spreading Threads Clothing Bank. “It also gives us more space for donations, which is huge. The more donations we receive, the more we can help foster and foster children right here in Tucson and southern Arizona. “
Additionally, Spreading Threads has just moved its Grace Retreat Foster Care donation bin in the 6800 block of North Camino Martin to Exchange Place near Building E where the Spreading Threads clothing bank is located. This will make it easier to take, sort and distribute donations in one place. Foster and adoptive families can easily donate and collect items from the clothing bank.
