The Neighborhood Closet

Project Response is also responsible for operating the Neighborhood Closet, located in Auburn, Nebraska. By donating your gently-used clothing here, you have the ability to change someone’s life. Not only will you grant individual access to one of his or her basic needs and possibly help provide for his or her family, but you will also help fund the continued operation of Project Response.
