Our new Clothes Closet
Good day, folks!! I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything. Never realized how much is required of a manager, at least not on a personal level…getting the idea these days!
I’m finding out that the work never ends- there’s ALWAYS something to do. Recently, Cindy and James (our Food Pantry Coordinators were contacted by an organization in town who had an overabundance of clothes. They wanted to donate them to us. We’d already been talking about a clothes closet so this fit right into our plans. Of course we couldn’t allow a little thing like NO ROOM deter us from our plans. 😉 True to their nature, Cindy and James demonstrated the love of Christ and took all those clothes, as well as racks to hang them up on, home with them, carted over 50 bags of stuff up to the third floor and filled up one of their bedrooms, holding onto the clothes for us.
After collaborating with our partners at to include a Clothes Closet with our next A.R.I.S.E. event, we (who normally work in the office) met at Goodwill and set everything up. It only took two days and on the third the event was to take place.
Many thanks goes to Christine, Chelsea, Stacy, Steven, Heather and Heidi for all the work accomplished!! A big thanks to D.P. and all our fabulous connections at Goodwill!! So glad we’re in partnership!
