Very glad to hear about your new safety precautions, particularly the UV sterilization, but you need to temperature-check ALL people coming in - not just the staff and volunteers. Just takes one sick person coming in to potentially get everyone there sick.
The Closet has a booth in the Business Expo area at the Herndon Festival on June 1st and 2nd. Come check it out!
I heard yesterday that you no longer accept stuffed toys, no matter how new or clean? :( Why is that? If people can't donate stuffed toys to a charity thrift shop, where would one donate them?
