polo shirts for men Groups provide clothing for needy
Faith based organizations and churches are tackling poverty to include making sure those in need are adequately clothed. every Thursday at Central Baptist Church at 624 East Side Blvd., said James Dennis, Sunday school director. About 25 people per week come for clothing.
The Salvation Army does not have a public clothes closet, Maj. Sue Dewan said. to noon weekdays to 700 Independence Ave. weekdays at 2328 E. Shawnee Bypass.
While clothing is not available to the public, the Gospel Rescue Mission does ensure that their guests are properly clothed for work and sleep, said Rich Schaus, director of the mission.
Schaus said they generally try to provide work based clothing to those in need. The clothing provided, he said, is aimed to be reflective of the type of work for which the mission’s guests are looking.
“Clothing protects us,” Schaus said. “It keeps our body warm or cool; it also a presentation of who we are.”
He said that people want to feel comfortable,
and clothing is one of the things that makes us feel comfortable.
The mission, as they do food, take donations of clothing.
“We’ll take anything and sort through it,” Schaus said.
The clothing that does not fit within the mission’s goal, they will provide to other churches and service organizations to distribute, Schaus said.
Though no donation is turned away, Schaus said what they look for is lightly used clothing for the mission’s guests to sleep in and clothes they can work in.
“We want to present items to our guests that show dignity,” he said.
Underwear and socks will only be accepted if they are new.
