Spring has finally arrived! If you’re doing some spring cleaning, consider donating your gently used women and children’s clothing to Florence Crittenton! Due to COVID-19, we had to limit our intake of used items over the past year and that has left our clothing closet in serious need of some updates. We are particularly in need of Women’s clothing size Large and up, Maternity clothes size Large and up (specifically summer clothes and leggings), women’s sneakers size 7 and up, and children’s clothing up to size 5T.
