The clothing drive at Messiah runs year round. We are looking for new and gently used items for the current season. During the fall and winter months we collect warmer items including socks, coats, sweaters, and sweatshirts. In the spring and summer we are looking for cooler items like shorts, t-shirts, dresses, etc. We will accept clothing for men, women, and children. All items can be placed in the collection tub at the bottom of the stairs just outside the entrance to the fellowship hall. Clothing will be given to organizations in the local area that give the items away to those that need them.
When this Occurs: Items are collected year round. There is an emphasis on collecting winter items from the middle of September through the middle of November. There is an emphasis on collecting blankets during November, December, and January for the House of Mercy.
Who Can Join: Everyone is welcome to participate. In addition to donating items, volunteers are also needed to sort the items and to deliver them.
Who We Serve: Community Lutheran Ministries (Maggie’s Kids), Greece elementary schools, the House of Mercy, and South Wedge Mission
