Any donation is a good donation, but volunteers for Arthurs Closet at Arthurs Middle School are encouraging people to donate warm clothing, shoes and boots and not appliances and toys.

Volunteers at St. Paul Lutheran Church, where many donations are sorted and categorized before being sent to Arthurs Closet, have been receiving several non-clothing items, recently.

Volunteer Silvia Duclo said non-clothing donations should be sent to nearby St. Thomas Episcopal Church -- located across the street.

"We're seeking clothing for boys and girls and men and women," Duclo said.

While volunteers are hoping to receive winter clothing, they are encouraging people to send any clothing available.

"The boys wear the t-shirts year round," Duclo said.

Those wanting to donate or volunteer can drop items off in a bin located outside St. Paul Lutheran Church or call 734-676-1565.

Those in need should call Arthurs Middle School 734-676-8700 to set up an appointment to browse Arthurs Closet.
