Help House News: Coat closet shares warmth around Osage County

By Raylene Quaney, Help House

Help House will be fully open once again beginning Oct. 1, 2021. No appointments are required. Masks are optional. For anyone who is not comfortable with this change, clients can place their food order online, set a time for pick up, and we will bring it out to their vehicle. You must be signed up as a client to take advantage of this great way to shop. For more information on how to do this, call 785-828-4888. Help House’s website offers lots of other information as well as the online food ordering link. Please visit the website and see what all is going on. Safe and secure cash donations may also be made there.

Coat closet opens

Oct. 1 is also the opening day for Help House’s 8th Annual Coat Closet. The coat closet will be open each day Help House is open until Oct. 29. In the past we have given out as many as 260 coats to residents of Osage County. You do not need to sign up ahead of time, and you do not need to be a client to receive a coat. We just limit one per family member living in the house. If anyone has coats to donate, we would greatly appreciate them. Infant and children’s coats are in short supply, and we can always use men’s and women’s 2X and 3X large coats. Please make sure they are clean and zippers work and they are in good shape.

Prom closet donations sought

Looking ahead to next spring, Help House is planning to hold the prom shop for the second time. It was a great experience and very successful this past spring. We are currently asking for donations of prom dresses that may be just hanging in the closet and taking up space. Why not pass them on to another young lady that might not be able to go out and purchase a new one. The girls last year had a great time shopping and 20 girls found the perfect dress for them. Drop off donations during our regular hours, or call for more information.

Stop in and shop

Just a reminder, any resident of Osage County is welcome to shop at Help House. We do not charge for any items you will find there, but donations are always appreciated.

Thank you

Help House would like to thank all of our supporters and wonderful dedicated volunteers. Without each of you we could not go about doing the work of this ministry. God bless each of you.
