The CRC relies solely on grant money and private donations, and accepts no government funding. We appreciate your generosity.

 Clothingclothesline

Clothing is a basic need our families often have difficulty accessing. Our Clothesline Clothing Distribution Center is a dependable resource for clothing and footwear for our families in shelter as well as other people in the community. We welcome gently used clothing and accept donations during our hours of operation (Mon-Thurs, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.). Clothing can also be dropped off in the wooden bin outside the CRC.

With the start of school approaching, we are in need of more school-aged clothing for both boys and girls. If you have gently used clothing that you can donate, please bring it in!

Furniture

As a partnering agency with Bridging, a local furniture bank that distributes gently-used household furnishings to community members in need, the Community Resource Center offers our shelter guests the opportunity to shop for needed furniture and household items at a minimal cost. Bridging has a drop-off site, as well as a home pick-up service for your furniture and larger household items. Contact Bridging at 651.631.3255 (Roseville site) or www.bridging.org for drop-off or pick-up information.
