Fill the Mayflower
Just in time for spring cleaning, Fill the Mayflower will take place at the southwest corner of the Valley West Mall parking lot. Drop off gently used furniture, household goods and small appliances and the FreeStore will distribute them to survivors of domestic violence. Many victims flee their abusive homes with not much more than the clothes on their back. The FreeStore helps them furnish their new homes.
