Despite the recent wintery weather, spring will soon be here. If you are like a lot of folks that means it is time for some spring cleaning and de-cluttering. This may leave you with items that you wish to donate rather than throw away. For help finding donation spots or thrift stores in your area for these items, Great Rivers 2-1-1 can help. Great Rivers keeps updated information for thrift stores, as well as clothing and furniture donation programs, some for special populations such as people who are homeless. Just dial 2-1-1 from your phone and an information and referral specialist will work to locate these listings for your county.
Great Rivers 211 is an information, referral and crisis line service. Professionally trained staff help answer your questions about local, statewide, and national resources and can assist you with all kinds of life situations and challenges. The line is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is free and confidential.
