PG&E employee volunteers build a closet in Greenville
There’s a new addition to The Spot in Greenville, courtesy of PG&E employee volunteers who built and stocked a shed offering free clothing for the Greenville community and surrounding communities.
Ten volunteers constructed the 10-foot-by-10-foot shed, located at 205 Pine Street, in The Spot, which is a community center for Greenville and includes several small businesses. Community leaders will manage the new closet. Its location is close to schools, so donations of clothing and footwear for children are encouraged as are adult sizes.
The Spot Closet was stocked with new and used clothing and footwear donated by PG&E employees and also will accept donations. Residents of the area affected by the Dixie Fire are welcome to visit the closet for needed clothing on intermittent weekends and during community events.
“The community identified a need to securely accept and distribute donated clothing and we were happy to help by building the shed and stocking it,” said Natasha Beehner, senior rebuild outreach specialist with PG&E’s Rebuild Team, which is helping in the rebuilding of Plumas County from the Dixie Fire. “PG&E employees will also collect clothing donations from coworkers throughout the region to provide ongoing support for The Spot Closet.”
