Extreme Summer Temperatures Impact Donation Hours

Effective immediately, Donation hours at The Caring Place are Mon - Sat, 9:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. This temporary change at our 2000 Railroad Avenue drive-through is due to this summer's extreme temperatures. 

The Caring Place will keep these new hours through Saturday, July 30th. The organization will reevaluate the weather forecast each week in order to decide when late afternoon hours will return. Please watch the banner on the organization’s website, or visit their Social Media pages on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter to learn about current hours in this department.

Donations Manager Justin Arzola shares “Thank you so much for understanding and continuing to make item donations in support of our mission. While we know changing our Donation hours can be frustrating, we care deeply about the health of our staff, loyal volunteers, and the donors who visit us this summer. We have implemented some new cooling measures in our outdoor warehouse this season, but it simply is not enough to combat the heat.”

Other programs and hours at The Caring Place are unchanged and are as followed:
