Ruthie's Community Closet
"Take what you need... Give what you don't."
The Community Closet provides FREE CLOTHING to those in need. There are no special qualifications for the program, and everyone is welcome.
The Community Closet is open:
9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Tuesdays
5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Thursdays
"Good clothing is so much more than a basic need - it is a step out of poverty and towards a better life,” writes Sue Skiba in an announcement about the program. “The right clothes can open doors and provide opportunities that wouldn’t be available if one isn't dressed appropriately.”
She encourages others to support the ministry by starting a clothing drive within their circle of friends and family, or donating a new clothing item for a child to wear to school.
We are especially looking for jeans, teen clothing, children’clothing, men’s clothing, and larger size clothing. Please, no shoes or household items.
Donation hours are 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. For more information, call the church at (269) 792-2155.
