Central seeks clothes
Placeholder Image
Demand for coats, rainwear, boots and shoes at the Central Church of Christ clothing recycling site has totally cleared out the storage closets, leaving only a diminished assortment of items now hanging on the display racks, one of the congregation’s deacons has reported.“On the first day of winter, we’re faced with a thin margin of supply and the expected upswing in the number of adults and children needing this assistance,” Percy Phifer explained to Central members at the beginning of morning worship services Sunday. “Please think about taking a few minutes during this holiday week to check your closets at home and see if there is anything you can donate. This would be a good time to create a little more space in your wardrobe.”“We can use all kinds of coats and winter clothing, including shoes and boots, for men and women, boys and girls, of all ages,” Phifer said.
