Star House is a social service agency that operates Central Ohio’s only drop-in center for youth, ages 14-24, who are experiencing homelessness—and the only drop-in center in the nation that hosts continuous, best practice research.
We will volunteer by sorting and organizing clothing, shoes and other items in an orderly fashion so that others will know where to locate them when needed.
For safety and comfort, we recommend that you:
– Wear closed-toe shoes
– Wear weather-appropriate clothing (preferably in layers) as the warehouse environment can sometimes be unpredictably hot or cold
– Bring water to drink
