Grab & Run

This week is our Church's annual Fall Grab and Run. The Grab and Run is an amazing event where people in our community donate gently used clothing,we put it out on tables and people who could use the clothes come in, sometimes with their whole families and take what they need for free. I am always amazed at the people who come. They are always so gracious to each other. There is never any rushing to to get the best stuff. They just come and hang out and look through the clothes. 

We also have a hot dog BBQ and everyone gets free hot dogs and drinks for supper before they go.
If you live in the area and if you have a moment during this Thanksgiving season and if you possibly have clothing you don't want anymore. Please consider donating it to a really great cause. We need men, ladies and children's clothing. We also have people asking for towels and bedding.

 The Grab and Run  is this Thursday Oct. 14th 4-6:30. Please consider supporting this very worthy cause. There are so many people in our community that could really use some good winter clothing. The clothing can be dropped off at the Exchange (166 main street) or I can come and pick it up. We also need people who would like to donate their time by helping put the clothing out on tables the day before from 4- 7. It's a lot of fun!
