800 POUNDS OF CLOTHING DONATED!

     Thank you to all the generous donors during our October drive for the Clothing Bank of Delaware, operated by Friendship House. This clothing will be distributed free of charge to needy families in our community through requests by shelters, schools, hospitals, and social services agencies.

     A core ministry of Friendship House, the Clothing Bank of Delaware has three primary missions. First, it serves as a location for collecting and distributing donated clothing and a delivery service to those community agencies in direct contact with individuals and families in need. Second, it provides entry level employment and training to women re-entering the work force. Third, it creates volunteer opportunities for churches, businesses, and community organizations.

Many Thanks!

Outreach Ministry
