If you are interested in donating to TheRack, contact Lisa at lisa.therack@gmail.com.  If you are interested in shopping at TheRack, use the same email address to gain access to the building, located in the New Frontiers Building at 1 Gosling Road in Portsmouth, NH.

I am happy to have found TheRack, as I have a bunch of jewelry (costume, but you never know....) that I no longer wear and I would be more than happy to donate to Lisa and this great cause.  If someone is coming out of addiction and in to recovery, that's enough of a heavy lift.  TheRack gives these women some kindness and some sweet clothes (shoes, etc.) to land the job that they need to live a healthy life and get a new start.
