WASHINGTON-A Washington-based charity is back on track after fears of having to shut down.
"Threads, Hope and Love" gives out clothes and emergency items to families in need. The organization was renting its old building for a dollar a month, but couldn't afford to buy when the property went up for sale.
It finally found a new building to buy, but only with the help of a $100,000 loan. The organizations president said they would like to pay back that loan in two years and is reaching out for financial donations to help.
It hopes to move into Washington's old West Meats building in May after major renovations.
"Redo floors, ceilings, everything. And we're going to make it exactly what this company needs for the future. It gives us growth area and it's a perfect location, it's one block off Washington square," said President Cindy Shuford.
If you want to help, Shuford said people can mail in donations to:
