As the nighttime temperatures slide into the 40s and leaves start turning their dazzling fall colors, we’re reminded families need to be prepared with winter clothing and footwear.Just in time for cooler months, Food and Raiment Day at Central Church of Christ this Saturday, Oct. 19, will help ensure local citizens of all ages are adequately supplied with coats, sweaters, shoes and boots.The clothing giveaway will be in progress from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Central’s Benevolence Center next to the historic downtown church. Anyone in need of clothing of all kinds is welcome to come, browse the racks and shelves, and take what is needed. As a bonus gift to the community, the congregation will also be offering a free hot meal in the nearby fellowship hall during the same hours.Central holds weekly garment giveaways on Thursdays from 9-11 a.m. “We’re seeing a lot of new people coming through,” said Becky Wilmore, one of the prime organizers of Central’s clothing recycling center.
