Thanks for support of Everybody’s Closet community aid

On Sept. 15, Everybody’s Closet put on another event at the Carl Gipson Senior Center. This project is staffed by members of the center. It is one way we give back to the city and county that have done so much for us. At this last event we served 189 people.

When you come to one of our events, we give you a shopping bag and a place at the table. We provide coffee, cookies and some substantial snacks and a place to talk with friends. The largest room in the facility is filled with many racks of hanging clothing and tables are filled with men’s, women’s and children’s clothing as well as “soft” housewares. Some clothing even sports the original price tags. But at Everybody’s Closet everything is free.

Everybody’s Closet would like to make note of the groups that partnered with us and deserve out deepest thanks. The Carl Gipson Senior Center, the Carl Gipson Senior Center Foundation, the YWCA, Volunteers of America, Advent Lutheran Church and Grandview Village of Marysville.

We could not operate without your support. You give of yourselves gladly and teach us every day that the gift of giving of oneself, ones time and ones resources make this world a better place in which to live.

Thanks you all. See you at the next Everybody’s Closet.

Nancy Fischer
