To help families facing hard times, the Gladstone Ministerial Association teamed up with Gladstone Schools to create a community clothes closet at Gladstone High. The site serves youths, providing clothing and shoes for babies, kids, and teens.
Regular hours for shoppers and donations:
• Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon.
Location: in a portable classroom on the north side of the Gladstone High campus, at 18800 Portland Avenue. For easy access, turn right on Nelson (the first street north of GHS) and turn in at the fire lane.
The group needs a volunteer to build dressing rooms, plus donations of department store shopping bags for those served. For more information, call coordinator Karen Gallaway at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Partners in the project include New Life Church, Gladstone Gospel Fellowship, Gladstone Christian Church, Gladstone Church of the Nazarene, and Gladstone Schools.
