Since starting the 25th anniversary charity contest OakParkApartments.com has gotten several requests to add charities to its original list. Recently, Calvary Memorial Church called asking if Emergency Clothes Closet, one of its ministries, could be added to the list. Knowing that exposure for these charities can only be a positive OakParkApartments.com decided to add them to the list.So many Oak Parkers are truly committed to giving back and unless they know about a charity they can’t respond to that charities needs. Emergency Clothes Closet is a valuable resource for many people suffering from the effects of the current economy. The Emergency Clothes Closet mission and link are included below and Oak Park Apartments wishes them good luck in the contest but also hopes that Oak Parkers see this info and makes a clothing donation as well!
The Emergency Clothes Closet: Outside and inside our doorstep, friends and neighbors face the challenge of inadequate and threadbare clothes. At Calvary, we are determined to help alleviate their suffering by providing free clothing to those in need at a new ministry called The Emergency Clothes Closet.
“The Closet” is the clothing arm of a broader ministry of churches, pooling their resources in order to serve the poor in our neighborhood. Some churches provide shelter; others, food; still others, job training. All of the churches serve the needy with the goal of moving clients toward self-sufficiency.
