As we all wait for COVID-19 to leave town and are isolated at home, running out of movies, games, Zoom gatherings, and other activities to do, here is a do-it-yourself, work-at-home project for any person or persons handy with a saw and tape measure--building one to three clothing racks for The Kearney Center.
Among the many donations we have received throughout the pandemic from a generous community, clothing is one--and lots of it! Rather than folding and stacking the clothing donations on tables, we believe that we can store and display them more adequately if we had three 6-ft. clothing racks--sturdy but simply constructed out of wood and half-inch steel pipe. A donation in this case would take the form of your valuable time and cost of materials.
If any of you out there want to tackle this project, a photo is included of a basic design. We can always discuss possible variations you see possible.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

The mission of The Kearney Center is to reduce homelessness by providing a safe environment that promotes dignity and respect for individuals in our community and to make homelessness rare, brief, and non-recurring,
The Kearney Center provides 24-hour comprehensive emergency services to individuals experiencing or on-the-verge of experiencing homelessness within the 8-county Big Bend region.
