Hands and Feet of Jesus – Clothing Give Away

There are many in our valley making hard choices right now.  After rent, utilities and food there isn’t much left for school and work clothes. On Saturday, September 15th, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., we will be the hands and feet of Jesus by giving away clean, gently used clothing and coats.  If you just love to shop, there is always a need for new socks and underwear (either gender, any size).
