Every Sunday, Trinity Episcopal Church opens the doors to its Clothes Closet--well, as long as they have the volunteers to do so.
The Clothes Closet is an outreach program of the church that provides clothing to anyone who needs it. It's open on Sunday mornings, while Trinity is also hosting a Community Prayer Breakfast.
The closet needs volunteers for January 15 and 22 in order to be able to open. Volunteers arrive at 7:30 a.m. and leave as soon as 9 a.m. This is a great way to earn service hours for middle or high school students who need them, but more importantly, it's a great way to give back in our community.
There is no need to show up in your Sunday best--in fact, just come in comfy clothes and shoes. We know 7:30 is an early time to be somewhere on a Sunday!
CVEM has a team that serves in the closet and at prayer breakfast quarterly and will be doing so again on Feb. 19. We'd LOVE for you to join us then!
In addition to your time, the Clothing Closet could also use donations. They specifically need men's short sleeve shirts, jeans and shoes of all sizes. As long as they are wearable, they are not picky about some tattering or even some stains. They also need donations of ladies plus size clothing 2X and above. Donations are accepted in Trinity's office during normal business hours: M-Th 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and F 8:30 a.m. to Noon.
If you would like to volunteer or find out more information, call or e-mail Sarah Riddick at 706.580.0769 or SRiddick(at)aflac.com.
