At the Women Giving Back (WGB) Store, The Knutson Companies has finished an adjoining 7,064 square feet of space, essentially doubling the size of the WGB Store and allowing for a larger retail area; more storage capacity; a playroom for children while mothers shop; and administrative offices.
“Our bigger space,” said WGB Volunteer and Board Member Patricia Leader, “will allow us to enlist more volunteers to assist clients, engage more businesses for clothing drives, and house more clothing items to distribute. As a result, we’ll ultimately serve 50 percent more people—an estimated 3,000 homeless women and 6,000 children annually—in a calm and respectable setting. We’ll also explore expansion of Store hours and the feasibility of opening on additional days each month.”
