Somebody needs you

The goal of Somebody Needs You is to match donors with the specific requests of needy Spokane residents.

The list of requests is coordinated by the Volunteers of America in cooperation with recognized social service agencies in Spokane. If you have an item to donate, please contact the social service agency directly. Donors who can deliver items are especially appreciated. If someone you know needs help, contact a local social service agency provider.

• Recently divorced mother of two boys needs stacking washer/dryer and hide-a-bed. Call Shannon at Early Head Start, who will be happy to pick items up, at (509) 279-6906.

• Formerly homeless adults need vacuum cleaner and cleaning supplies. Call Heather at Volunteers of America, at (509) 624-2378, ext. 140.
