OCTOBER CLOTHING DRIVE!

     Cleaning Out Your Closet? We are collecting clothes this month for The Clothing Bank of Delaware. All clothing is donated to needy citizens of Delaware. All types of clothing and shoes are accepted. Especially needed are: coats, children's clothing, men's pants, and extra-large sizes. Donations may be left under the foyer table.

     A core ministry of Friendship House, the Clothing Bank of Delaware has three primary missions. First, it serves as a clearing house for the collection and distribution of 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.

     Questions or need a tax receipt? Contact Sue Welles: 302.299.9876 or swelles1@verizon.net
