Crosslines in Monett has reached a mid-winter crunch with a severe drop in donations.
"This generally happens after Christmas and before spring cleaning season begins," said MaLinda King, director of the not-for-profit organization. "The weather has a lot to do with it. When it is cold and rainy, donations usually fall off."
King said there is a need for good, serviceable clothing, household items, small appliances and what-nots.
"With spring on its way, people will soon start cleaning out their closets and getting rid of excess items they no longer need," King said. "We are hoping that donations pick up again soon.
"As long as the clothing is in good shape, not stained or torn, we will happily accept it," King said.
Currently, the food pantry is "in good shape," according to King.
"We typically tend to run short on canned soups that include meat," she continued.
Those interested in making donations are urged to stop by Crosslines at 510 E. Cleveland during operating hours, which are from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
