Clothing Bank
We are starting a  clothing bank for incarcerated individuals who are preparing for release and may not have weather appropriate clothes available.  As the seasons change and you begin to clean out your closets, please keep these folks in mind.  We are accepting all female and male size clothing and shoes.  You may contact me directly and I can pick up the donations or you may bring them to the next re-entry coalition meeting scheduled for April 24th.



How To Get Involved




The mission of the Lycoming County Re-entry Coalition is to facilitate and support the successful return of incarcerated individuals to the community.
