Harmony Assembly of God, 1324 Greasy Valley Road in Paris, will be giving away new school clothing on Saturday from noon until 2 p.m.
Organizers have collected a wide variety of new clothing, ranging in children’s sizes 4-5 to adult sizes 2X, and shoes ranging from tiny to adult size 13. In addition to the new school clothes, there is a gently worn used clothes closet that will be open that day and there will be some school supplies and groceries available. Though everything is free, there is a limited supply for each child or family.
Although there is a wide variety of styles and sizes available, as with any “store you might shop at” and there is no guarantee that you will find everything you are looking for and it will be given away on a first come, first served basis.
Organizers report having about 200 pairs of shoes, racks and racks of clothing all sizes, socks and unders. Children must be present to receive free clothing and school supplies. Hot dogs and drinks will be served free of charge that day, as well.
