Homeless Organization Opens Clothing Closet


Bethesda Cares, the homeless prevention nonprofit, opened its clothing closet yesterday and is accepting winter clothing donations for its clients. More than 70 homeless people are in Bethesda, according to the organization. Bethesda Cares provides eviction prevention, a meal program, counseling services and help getting into group homes and homeless programs for the chronically homeless and working poor. The clothing closet allows the homeless to pick out items they need. Those interested in donating can contact Bethesda Cares. Donations will be accepted at the organization's offices (7728 Woodmont Ave.) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Donations can also be dropped off at the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Regional Services Center (4805 Edgemoor Lane) but staff there asks that you call 240-777-8210 first to arrange a time.
