Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

The Making Changes office and our three programs will be closed from December 19, 2014 – January 04, 2015. We would like to thank our community, supporters and donors for supporting Making Changes over the past year. We could not do what we do with you!

We would like to wish you an extraordinary New Year filled with inspiration, joy, laughter, and time spent with those closest to you.

Winter Clothing

With cold days upon us, we are seeking donations of warm, winter clothing! In particular is a need for outerwear. For our teen program, My Best Friend’s Closet, we would appreciate cute, clean coats, jackets and parkas. For the Walk-In Closet, we would appreciate stylish, clean coats and jackets. Both programs have a need also for warm boots along with gloves, mittens, hats and scarves.

Your donation of these items will be so greatly appreciated!!!
