Free school clothes available Saturday

Aug 22, 2017

The African Violet Foundation and First Baptist Church will host a Caring Through Clothing event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the church.

The foundation and the church have traditionally held a Caring Through Clothing event on Black Friday to give away free clothing in all sizes, but the event Saturday is specifically for youth in preschool through 12th grade so they can have clothes for back to school.

“We will not be serving older adults at this specific event,” said Staci Wilson Wright of the African Violet Foundation.

Everyone is welcome; recipients do not have to meet any income guidelines.

There will be a limit of one Hy-Vee paper bag full of clothes and shoes per child, on a first-come, first-served basis, so that as many kids who need items can receive them.
