Anney’s Closet is a project that improves the lives of girls and women in Victoria by connecting people who have too much with people who have too little.
Using household items donated by downsizing seniors, friends of Soroptimists, and other donors, we’ve created a “free store” in a storage locker kindly donated by West Shore U-Lock.
Girls and women who are referred to us from advocates at our partner social service agencies have the opportunity to select items from Anney’s Closet that will transform their new apartments into functional and comfortable homes.
Volunteers work to sort and arrange donated items in the Closet, build relationships with social agencies and the community, and help the visitors pick out items for their new home.

The radio interview is posted on their blog:
