Members from the church and the community can donate clothing, hygiene products and money to help stock the closet, located at South Temple and C Street. Then the homeless or low income families can get the items they need.

Atkinson feels it is a great opportunity for the community to give back. Community advocate Pamela Atkinson says, "I find that if you create opportunities for people to donate, to help others, they willingly give of their time and willingly give of their finances, as well as material goods."

Atkinson will keep some of the items in her car, so as she travels around the city she can hand out items to anyone who's in need.
