We take this months’ adventure out of the home to Samaritan House. Samaritan House provides recuperative care to the homeless who are just out of the hospital. The home that was donated for the shelter is very old and with limited storage space. On a previous visit, we discovered that their basement has a lot of space potential for storing items such as clothing donations that the guests can take when they leave, as well as household items (holiday decorations) that are only used seasonally and don’t need to be accessed year-round. However, the current shelves are rotting and the design doesn’t allow for efficient storage.
A group of friends and I plan to give this basement a makeover. Let me know your thoughts on what we should do to organize this space. I am thinking plastic shelving with clear totes for seeing contents, but am open to ideas!
