Clothing People In Need
Available donated toiletries are also offered, as needed. All donated clothing goes to our Receiver through the warehouse, where it is inspected for quality, hang, price, and display the clothing in the Thrift Shop where it becomes available to Ruth’s House clients and customers.
At least 30% of our clothing vouchers are provided to children of low income families. Children who receive clothing vouchers are invited to choose 2 free books and can sign up for our reading program where they can earn a $5 gift card to Ruth’s House. When a client family member checks in for their clothing voucher appointment, information about other wraparound, or supplemental, services such as food stamps, pantries, heating assistance, and communal meals are made available to them.
Reading Club for Children
Parents, does your child like to read? Are they 12 years old or younger? Are they ready to read at least five books a month?
If so, visit Ruth’s House and join our Reading Club! Club members are given two (2) free books when you visit the store. When you have finished reading five (5) books, return the Club Members card completed with your name, the book titles and authors, and you will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the store that same day! One gift certificate per month per child.
