*Unfortunately, AWARE is not able to accept clothing donations.  However, we do have accounts at Alaskan Dames and Mommy-&-Me.  When you bring your clothes to either of these locations, they will go through your bag(s) and what is able to be accepted (please see the links to their policies below), they will put on AWARE’s account.  Women and children who then come to AWARE for clothing needs, will be given vouchers to use at these locations.   Thanks again for your support.
