Help raise funds for the American Liver Foundation by donating your gently used brand name items and décor to My Sister’s Attic & Closet. Bring your items to any location and ask them to credit it to the American liver Foundation account. For your larger décor and furniture items, email photos to the closest store location to you to see if they have interest. This is another great way to support ALF and the community! Go to or to find locations nearest you.

Contact Ashley Drew at 602-953-1800 or to move forward the fight to end liver disease.
