Kids Clothes Closet
On October 21, 2000 the doors were opened to a room filled with beautiful "gently used" chiildren's clothing, toys, books and equipment. The vision of one church member generated the idea to share the items mentioned once the children had outgrown them. Everyone knows that young children outgrow clothing before they wear them out and what better way to get more use out of them than to share them with someone else. Thus, the idea became a reality as one unused room in the education wing was converted into the "store."
There are clothes and other needed items form children from birth through size 6. There also is an assortment of maternity clothing. Church members continue to keep the room supplied and from time-to-time, when there is more than we know we can use, we send items to Rural Ministry for distribution.
Over 200 families have received clothing since the beginning and that adds up to hundreds of children from many of the 16 communities in Chautauqua County.
Gifts of Love is located downstairs in the education wing of the church every Monday and on the first Saturday of every month from 10:00 - Noon. No appointment is necessary.
COME AND SEE HOW MUCH WE CARE!!
