KARE Clothing Store: Our hours have changed since the pandemic caused us to shut down, but we're still here to serve our public. Our current hours are Wed-Fri 1-5pm and Saturdays 9am-2pm. Periodic sales are being planned and our Senior Shopping Days are back the first Thursday of each month. ​We are welcoming back some volunteers, but we could always use help during store hours helping sort and help on the floor. We are taking precautions to keep our staff, volunteers, and customers safe. We have a shield at the register, sanitize often, and we encourage masks. Come see us! Watch our Facebook page for updates and pictures of items for sale in the store!
