The 34th  annual Kids Clothes Closet give-away was held August 18. 

Packages of underwear and socks, and gifts cards for jeans and shoes were given to 146 children, (47 families) preschool through high school, an increase over last year’s attendance. A good selection of clothing was available for tops and pants.

Between set-up, serving clients, and tear-down, many are needed for this one-day event. Thank you to the following for their service:  Anita Gallow, Becky Dahlman, Phyllis Ogden, Iona Gould and grandchildren Ellen and Abby, Pastor Ross, Dayne Johnston, Jessica and Jacob Rahn, Shirley Johnson, Sandy Catt, Shirley Cooper, Leah Peterson, KC Babcock, Pat Dick, Jill and Hannah Lair,  Yvonne Martin, and Ben, Easton, and Nathan Ross.Many thanks to Curtis Thomsen and Leona Boone for sorting donated clothing. Also, thanks to Geri Skreen for preparing and mailing reminder postcards.

Thank you to all who have given so generously toward this worthwhile cause, both monetarily and/or providing clothing. Many parents expressed their gratitude for this help.
