The Back-to-School clothing drive for the Cinncinatus Rural Ministries will be held on Wednesday, August 3rd from 4-7 pm and Thursday, August 4th from 9 am to 5 pm in McCabe Hall.
The Back-to-School clothing drive combines the normal request for gently used clothing and bedding for entire families with special emphasis on clothing and supplies for school children. Jeans, shirts, blouses, sweaters, sweatshirts, sweat pants, sneaks, etc. are needed for school children. We’re even asking for Prom Gowns for those special teenage dances. Basic school supplies like notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, calculators, scissors, markers, etc. are requested. Clothing for other family members, particularly infants and toddlers and adults requiring very large sizes, is also needed.
We’re making a special appeal to all the youth of the parish to dig through their closets and donate at least one or two good, clean items of clothing that less fortunate kids would be proud to wear.
This is a large request for a large need, but we count on the generosity that you have always shown by donating good, clean, usable items that will add dignity to your benefactors.
Please sort your donations into separate containers men, women, boys and girls clothing and for school supplies and bedding. Save winter clothing for a drive to be held later since storage space is limited. Thank you for your continued generosity.
