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 individuals access to one of their basic needs and possibly help provide for their family, but you will also help fund the continued operation of Project Response.
