Have you ever wondered why we are always accepting clothing donations at Church on the Street?

It’s a fairly simple answer, but it does take a little explaining.  Most of us really don’t think about running out of clothes.  We wear clothes, they get dirty, we put them in the washer/dryer and viola!!!  The once dirty clothes are almost like new and we start over.

But living on the street presents different challenges.  With no way to wash clothing, they must simply be discarded at some point.  There’s just no way around it.  It would be awesome if we had a way to provide laundry facilities, but at this point we don’t.

So we go through a lot of clothing on a weekly basis.  Our community members that are in need sign up for a visit to the clothing closet.  We pass out what we have and rinse and repeat.
