Have you 8 minutes? Please watch this video sharing about three people connected to BACN, and its impact on their lives.
This video was created through the generosity of Rotary Charities of Traverse City, by PB & J Marketing who also donated many hours of their expertise to the project.
As the temperature drops, we begin focusing more on keeping Neighbors warm. In January 2018, we’ll begin sharing the Warm for a Night program with area hoteliers, the local news media and our Facebook page. Watch for these updates! For more information, or to participate, contact Kelly at BACN—231-882-9544, ext. 227, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love donations! Here is what we can accept:
Due to current space constraints, we are now only able to accept donations of quality clothing, linens (sheets, towels, blankets) and basic kitchen items such as dishes, cutlery, pots and pans.
When donations are brought to us we will need to check that they meet the following criteria:
- Is the clothing appropriate for the current season?
- Is the fabric in good conditions? (looking for fabric not stained, faded, pilled or ripped)
- Is the garment in good repair? (not torn, missing buttons, etc.)
- Have the garments been washed and are ready to hang on racks? (We do not have the capability for washing or ironing)
Please be patient with us as we narrow our focus. BACN’s hallmark of service is dignity and respect, and for now, we only have the ability to accept clothing that our Neighbors will be able to wear with the same sense of pride as we do our own clothing, and basic kitchen needs.
Thank you for your understanding!
