LOOKING AROUND

“Job Interview” Clothing Drive Benefits Jackson Street Youth Shelter

Grace High School Youth want to help at risk youth prepare for jobs – do you have clothes in good condition, but are no longer needed: button-up shirts, blouses, slacks, and ties that would be appropriate for a job interview. Place anything you’d like to give in the big yellow box in the Fireside Room. Thanks!
