Ulla's "Sister's" Place Becomes a Reality
The people of Bristol Bay have always been so generous with their contributions to SAFE, our problem was that we had no room to store many of these items. In 2004 Ulla's Place became a reality, it is a thrift store and in 2006 we will be going up one floor because we have quickly grown out of that space as well. That space will house a co-op for women's arts and crafts and also a support group area.
Ulla's Place is run solely by volunteers. Items donated to Ulla's Place are tax deductible. While we do sell the items that come into us, we also donate back to the community. Money is not necessary, if someone cannot pay, that is not a barrier to getting the needed clothing or household (furniture, appliances, utensils) items.
Many times our volunteers or staff will get information about a family that needs things, they will box them up and send them out to them or a school will call with the need of clothing for some of the children.
Every penny of the money that is raised at Ulla's Place goes into providing direct services to the victims of violence in Bristol Bay. Read more about Ulla's Place.
