Clothing drive underway for families served by refugee clinic

3/3/2017, 6 a.m.

DeKalb residents are urged to “share what you don’t wear” with disadvantaged families by donating items to the DeKalb Board of Health’s ongoing clothing drive.

Gently used clothes and shoes are needed for the families being served in the Board of Health’s refugee clinic.

Seasonal items are always in demand – coats and sweaters for winter months and suitable apparel for warmer weather in spring and summer. The clinic is mostly in need of clothing and shoes for children and infants, especially for boys. Socks and unused undergarments are a bonus, and items should be washed/cleaned.

Sorting and labeling the items is appreciated as well as providing items with tags.

The items can be dropped off at the E.L. Richardson Health Center, 445 Winn Way in Decatur. To make arrangements for a large drop-off or for questions and more information, contact Erica M. Brooks at erica.brooks@dph.ga.gov or 404-297-3787.
