Havasu HOPE and the Clothes Closet has a new location at 1968 Mesquite Ave., and is in the process of being renovated to ensure the needs of Havasu-area people are being met.
Havasu HOPE is the name of the building that now houses The Clothes Closet. Havasu Hope is being repurposed as a nonprofit facility meant to assist the area’s needy.
The Clothes Closet – and now Havasu HOPE – is the brainchild and labor of love of Christine Watson-Buntemeyer and she has been operating it from her business at Print It Havasu.
And what you ask is Havasu HOPE?
Watson-Buntemeyer said, “Our mission is to help anyone in need of clothing, food or other necessities, always without charge.
“We help find resources in our community they may need, in a judgement-free atmosphere,” she said.
Watson-Buntemeyer said clients will include the underprivileged, the homeless, foster children and their foster families, children bullied in school, veterans, senior citizens, and victims of domestic violence.
Havasu HOPE is in constant need of snack foods, socks, underwear, work shoes, sleeping bags and tents. Funds donated will go toward finishing the Havasu HOPE building or to purchase much-needed items. Money can be donated directly at National Bank of Arizona or checks can be mailed or dropped off at the business office.
The Clothes Closet Inc., nonprofit 501 (c) (3) number is 47-1546359.
