Now is the season for getting out your family’s winter clothes from last year (or if you like me…several years) and trying them on. Now if you’re like most people I know you have either outgrown some of these clothes or you just don’t like them anymore. What to do with all of these clothes you may wonder. Why not start a Winter Clothes Drive to benefit your local mission?

That’s just what we decided to do at our church this weekend. We are going to be taking clothes donations at the church through the month of November. As space fills up, we will be taking the clothes to our Association’s Clothes Closet to benefit the less fortunate in our area. The closest mission is about an hour drive away from the church and wouldn’t benefit many of our local citizens.

This is an easy thing to coordinate, all you need is a few willing participants and some outgrown, maybe out of style, slightly worn clothes. Our association’s clothes closet has also asked that we request blankets as they are a much need commodity during these cold winter months. We are all going through our closets, attics, and storage buildings at this time of the year to find our winter clothes…now is the perfect time to start up your very own clothes drive. If starting your own clothes drive sounds like too much work, please consider taking your own winter clothes to a local mission or safe house. If you’re like the typical American, you throw away 67.9 pounds of used clothing and rags each year. These nonprofit organizations will make sure your clothes go to benefit someone in need this winter.

Do your part to help someone in need stay warm this winter!
