HUBER HEIGHTS, Ohio (WDTN) — A Huber Heights clothing charity is running out of room after losing some storage units, and organizers say they will have to pay for space or be forced to shut down.
Cody’s Caring Clothing Charity is in need of money to help cover costs for two storage units to sort and keep all of its donations in between events.
The charity had two volunteer garage spaces up until last week, but those spaces are no longer available.
Founder Maggie Hydler said she had to call Plato’s Closet this week and Once Upon a Child saying she couldn’t accept any more donations from the stores because she didn’t have anywhere to put them.
For the time being, the charity has been given a storage unit for free until September 1. But after that, it will have to pay nearly $300 a month for two units. The non-profit has no choice but to raise money to rent space in order for the charity to continue.
“We understand that a lot of people who actually come to our event are unable to even pay the dollar to receive the bag,” said Hydler. “Families who can’t pay for the bag at our events, they can still come. They don’t need to donate because we know we’re helping families that really can’t help themselves at this time.”
The organization has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for storage units. Click here to donate.
