Formerly the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund, the Community Assistance Fund currently supports our Saturday morning clothing closet program, which provides clothing, shoes, and much-needed toiletries to our urban poor that come in on Saturday morning for our meal program. The fund supplements our current physical clothing donations by purchasing seasonal items, items that have to be brand new (like underwear and socks), and items that are low in stock (like men’s pants and jeans). The fund goes even further by aiding in the organizational needs of an ever-growing clothing closet program that is housed in a very limited space. Our goal is that the clothing closet becomes more than just a place to get clothes – we want it to be comfortable and calming to its visitors.
For more information or to donate to the fund, contact the church office manager at 615-254-7584 or [email protected]. You can also text “dpchurch offering” to 73256 and select Clothes Closet from the drop-down.
