Effective September 6, Donation hours at The Caring Place are Mon-Sat, 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. This marks the return of afternoon hours after a temporary adjustment due to extreme heat this summer. All locations of The Caring Place are closed on Monday, September 5th for Labor Day.
Donations Manager Justin Arzola shares, “Thank you for making item donations in support of our mission during our summer hours. We are now ready to reintroduce our previous schedule. Changing our Donation hours can be frustrating for our donors, but we appreciate their patience as we prioritized safety this summer. We are looking forward to some cooler temperatures and having you back in our drive-through line in the afternoons.” Justin continues, “Afternoon Donation hours help us make time for tasks around the facility in the mornings. We also make furniture pick-ups across our pick up area.”
