Our First Public Clothing Closet Giveaway

On Saturday, June 13, 2009, Nativity of the Holy Theotokos Orthodox Church in Greenville, NC opened up its Clothing Closet to the needy. While the Clothing Closet has always been available to those in need, it was hoped that by scheduling a giveaway on a particular day and advertising the event in the media, that additional people could be reached. In the end, we were able to help 19 adults and many children in need and gave away many bags of clothing.

Given this positive turnout, we are planning to make the Clothing Closet available on a regular basis to the community. We will be hosting an open door event every third Saturday of each month from 1-2:30 p.m. Donations are always needed, and we also need volunteers who are willing to help us manage the giveaway. It only requires a few hours of your time, and you will be participating in something with immediate, tangible blessings to the community. If you are interested, please contact Shari Tourlitis at 252-964-3363.
