Amelia’s Closet Apparel Donation Guidelines
YOUR GENEROSITY IS APPRECIATED:
Each month on social media, we post the items we are accepting. Due to limited space, we are very specific about the items we can accept: New or less than 3 years old, up-to-date styles, clean in appearance and smell, pressed and on hangers. Conservative and professional are key. Skirts/dresses should be at least knee length and tops should not be sheer, nor necklines lower than a hand-width from the collar bone. Items should be easily interchangeable and free from needing mending.
Donations are accepted any Tuesday 11:00 A.M. – 1:00 P.M. at 810 NW Broad St. on the right side of Jackson Heights Plaza.
