Annual Sock & Underwear Drive for Portland's Transitional School Begins July 30
Each year our church collects packages of socks and underwear to donate to the clothing closet at Portland's Transitional School. This year, we have moved the drive ahead in time to better coincide with back-to-school sales and to get the donations to the Transitional School closer to the start of their school year. The drive will run from July 30 to September 17.
All donations of socks, boys and girls underwear, t-shirts, camisoles and bras are a tremendous blessing to this effort.
This school serves homeless students in the Portland area, and their clothing closet is frequently the only resource that the children have for clean, well-fitting clothes. The contributions from our Sock and Underwear Drive are especially appreciated, because these foundation garments are often low priority in family situations where food and housing are uncertain.
