Our clothing ministry at The Lord’s Locker

Continues going strong in year two under reliable & steady leadership of Director Eileen Carpenter, her right hand side-kick Tracy Haas and the many volunteers! This ministry has produced over $500 for missions during the first three months this year! (Note that in Fall of 2016 we raised $561, and in 2017 we raised $841.) We are so thankful for all the volunteers, donations and blessings that make this ministry a success. Did you know that customers can bring in Campbell Soup Label Box tops for Education in exchange for merchandise? The Box Tops then are passed onto the Crawford County READ Program! Did you know that the consignment store Oh La La has made numerous donations to the Lord’s Locker? We have been able to help many people thru this ministry at the St. James Shelter; The Green House; The Soup Kitchen; Fairview/Fairmont Apartments; Yolanda Barco Cancer Center; The Used Shoe Drive (thru the Erie UM Alliance and All God’s Children Ministries – persons in developing countries receive the shoes to help them establish micro enterprises and provide shoes for their neighbors at an affordable price.); The Erie Rainbow Thrift Store and Chaps. Homeless people can come in and get clothing and/or a small bag of toiletries. We were able to fill a tree stand with winter hats, mittens, scarves and gloves this cold season for the taking in the hall outside Soup Kitchen! (The tree stand was made by the children and families attending Messy Church in the fall!) Thank you to all who have helped in this clothing ministry! Director Eileen says that 2nd hand gently used linens, bedding and towels are really needed if you can share!
