Volunteers are needed to help with their social media and website; and to provide life skills and literacy trainings. They offer space to organizations providing these.
Item donations: Clean clothing and household items can be brought to 14 Plaza Lane in Middlebury Center on Thursdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Please bring them inside!
Financial contributions: Sister Jenny’s Outreach Center needs a walk-in freezer and the renovations that would require. Money also goes toward diesel fuel for the refrigeration truck, emergency counseling services for clients, and facility overhead—especially electricity.
