It's Back to School Time!
The back to school season is quickly approaching and for
some it has already arrived and with it comes the back to school shopping for
supplies, shoes, and clothing. Have you ever asked “what happens for the
children whose parents are just making ends meet?” How do those parents supply everything on the
never-ending supply lists, only to see the list grow one the first day of
school?Where does the money for shoes,
supplies, and clothing come from if you are barely making the rent?
Thankfully, Dove Inc. Children’s Clothing Room offers
clean gently used clothing to any parent in need. Parents can select up to
three outfits per child every thirty days. We try and offer new socks and
underwear to all children as well but as summer winds down so does our supply.
The beginning of every school year can be overwhelming
and exciting at the same time, but it is not all about the No. 2 pencils, new
shoes, or even new books, it is about the children. So, while you are out
shopping for that perfect binder, lunch box, or superhero folder for your own
little one become a superhero to another child and purchase some new socks and
underwear for Dove Inc. Children’s Clothing Room so we can meet the need,
together we can make a child smile even on the first day of school.
The Children’s Clothing Room is located at 2201 E.
Prairie St., inside Prairie Ave. Christian Church. Hours of operation are
Monday through Thursday 1:00pm to 3:30pm.We serve children from newborn to 17 years of age. All sizes for both
genders are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
