    SR. PEG TALKS TO COFFEE AND CONVERSATION ATTENDEES ABOUT THE MISSION OF STH

    Join us for an informal gathering to learn more about our various partnerships, client services, tour our facilities, and meet our staff. You will hear about the personal journeys of our clients and how STH has assisted them and their families.

    We design your visit around our service hours, while we are open to the community, so you can catch a glimpse into the hustle & bustle of our ministry.

  • DONATION CRITERIA

    1) We believe that our clients deserve a decent start in life as they reclaim their independence. So, the same criteria we have for donated clothing holds for furniture and household items.
    If you would not give the items you want to donate to your relatives, please do not expect us to take them.
    Unfortunately, we do not have time to repair or clean items which do not meet our standards.

    2) We take the following new or gently used furniture donations: twin, full and queen beds, kitchen tables and chairs, end tables, living room chairs and sofas, storage cabinets, gas stoves, washers and/or dryers. We can only accept WORKING flatscreen TV’s.

    Thank you for your help and understanding.
