It’s our semi-annual clothes drive for the homeless. Philippians Place has partnered with Trinity United Methodist Church’s Phillips Park Ministry to provide much-needed clothes for the homeless community. Last fall we served over 191 people and it’s our hope to serve 220 or more this spring. Here’s how you can help:
Drop off new or gently used SUMMER clothes, shoes, purses, and backpacks for all ages at First Baptist Church, Jacksonville or Trinity United Methodist Church between now and May 18th.
You can help set up and sort clothes on Friday, May 19 from 5-9PM at Trinity United Methodist Church.
You can help assist with the clothes distribution and clean up on Saturday, May 20th from 9AM – 3PM at Trinity United Methodist church. (We’ll provide pizza on Friday & Saturday to all our volunteers).
