Local groups deliver 600 pounds of donated clothing to Cannon warming shelter

A quiet Saturday morning turned busy quickly at the Cannon warming shelter, as a parade of vehicles arrived to deliver supplies for members of Spokane’s homeless population.

Local groups Jewels Helping Hands and Solution is Hours work together to provide food and supplies on regular basis but, once or twice a month, they bring the clothing donations they accept to the shelters to allow the people staying there to shop for what they need- at no cost.

Today’s haul- about 600 pounds of donated apparel, said Julie Garcia, the founder of Jewels Helping Hands.

The organizations accept donated clothing and will even pick them up to be delivered. You can find more information about Jewels Helping Hands here and Solution is Hours here.
