The church does this on the first Sunday of every month. they allow the community to come and get free clothing of all sizes. 

“We are offering a free clothes closet which means you can come in and get as many clothes as you want absolutely for free,” said Allison.

Carolyn Allison, who is ahead of the program, says it started about seven years ago. 

Allison says that seeing a young child at church needing clothes helped sparked the idea for the program. 

“There was a little girl in our church that needed clothes and I brought up in a business meeting one night that we should offer a free clothes closet to the community,” said Allison.

The church is always taking donations and will host a free meal on January 21st.
