While visits to the First Teen Clothes Closet were down in the first few weeks of the year, by the end of January, our requests were back to normal, with 4 guests in the last week of January and 20 guests during the month of February.
The time has been busy, though, with teens and other volunteers sorting donations and keeping an eye on the transition to spring and summer.
Tina Nelson, director of discipleship for youth, says her high school youth group has eagerly jumped in and enjoyed the time they have spent working in the Clothes Closet.
With spring approaching, the First Teen Clothes Closet is accepting prom dresses, but if you have one to donate, please do so very soon, as proms are nearly here. Other special needs currently are boys’ jeans, particularly 32x34 or 32.36 sizes, girls’ leggings, jewelry and purses. We will also be looking for summer clothes soon.
If you have questions about the Clothes Closet or are interested in volunteering, please contact the church office or speak with Bridget Crave or Lori Lunney.
