Give Goods, Give Time, Give Inspiration

Donations that jingle and fold are critical for organizations like GOSO. But just as important is the donation of goods and services which contribute to our guys’ path to re-entry success! This season — and all year long — we hope you’ll consider a donation of dress socks (for the guy on his way to his first job interview!) or a donation of time at one of our workshops. There are so many ways to give to GOSO. Thank you!
