THERE IS ALWAYS A NEED.....

No mater if it's the cold of winter or the heat of summer, our friends on the streets of Charlotte often find themselves at the mercy of the elements. It is hard enough not having a roof over your head or a soft bed to sleep in, but many of our friends are in need of appropriate seasonal clothing.  As we enter the Spring/Summer months our immediate needs are obviously warmer weather clothing. Many wonderful people donate to Rice N Beans, but at times we get items that we are unable to use. Please do not send cold weather clothing from March-Sept. We have very limited storage capacity. We ask that you focus on the seasonal items currently needed, as listed below.

Items needed for Fall / Winter :

Oct&Nov -Light -Med Weight Jackets (Mens, Womens , L, XL, XXL)

Tennis Shoes

Boots

Blue Jeans (Mens) Size 30-36

Hats, Gloves, Scarfs (Men, Women)

Sweatshirts/Hoodies (Mens, Womans, L, XL, XXL )

Socks (Men, Womens)

Underwear (Men all sizes) (Woman all sizes)

Blankets, Fleece Throws, Sleeping Bags

Tents

Backpacks/Drawstring Bags

We are always in need of personal size items for toiletry packs.

If you have questions or would like to arrange a pick-up, please contact our donations coordinator, Dianne Keller, at ricenbeansdonations@gmail.com

We are always trying to make it as convenient as possible for those who want to help with items our friends are in need of. We now have links available to connect you to sites that will help you purchase items that we are currently in need of. Please click on the link below.
