Simpson United Methodist Church on the Westside of Evansville gave away free hats, coats and gloves during a drive-thru on Saturday, Jan. 9th
It was an extension of their Community Clothes Closet, which they have had to shut down due to safety concerns with the pandemic.
“If we have one person who comes and finds something they really need -- it’s worth it,” said church member Susie Babb. “Most of the people who have come -- have not had a coat on. Or hat or gloves or anything. So that shows us there is a need."
While there is not another clothing giveaway on the books just yet, those with referrals can be served at their Drive-Thru Food Pantry, Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
