Can you imagine not having a fresh change of clothes to change into after a long day? We offer a change of clothes, shoes, a belt, and undergarments to those in the community that are homeless. We also offer clothing vouchers to men, women, and children that may have had to leave all their belongings behind due to extenuating circumstances. This service has helped many in need and would not be possible without the generosity of those in the community that donates their belongings.
3. Your Donations Help MVK Clients Directly
Many of the items that are donated to the MVK Thrift Store are used and needed in the “Village”. Blankets, sheets, pillows, and towels are constantly needed by the men, women, and children that are staying at Martha’s Village & Kitchen. Clients are encouraged to go to the MVK Thrift Store to get clothing for job interviews and once employment is obtained we also assist them with clothing for their job. Your donations have also helped the clients with household items and have furnished the homes of many residents as they leave the housing program successfully.
