Annual event gives free clothes to community members

GRIFTON, N.C. (WNCT) – An annual event in Grifton gives free clothes to anyone in the community.

The Grifton Chapel Church of Christ Disciples of Christ works all year round to gather shirts, shorts and shoes to give out to the public.  Associate Minister Kiesha Chavis says she saw a need to serve the community.

“The members just jump right in because they are ready to work, ready to donate, and ready to give back to the community. They feel really great about doing it, so it’s definitely a team effort. There’s no “I” in team, so it’s a group effort. All of us do this together.”

Sunday starts the beginning of collecting clothes for next year’s event. If you have any clothes you’d like to get rid of, click here.
