Back to School Clothing Drive

If your kids are in need of school clothes, one local group has you covered.
A drive is now underway to collect gently used clothes for young people in our area whose families don’t have the money to buy new clothes.
You can drop off any boys and girls clothing, sizes 4T to 16 at Progressive Missionary Baptist Chruch on 20th Street in Gulfport. Community advocate Patricia Silva-Mujica said, “It’s not getting better in a lot of local people’s pockets. Kids are outgrowing their clothes. My idea is bring in what your kids have outgrown and you come in and you pick out, you know. It’s a swap so to speak, but if they have nothing to bring in, they still go in and get what they need.”
The clothing being collected is for local children grades K through sixth. For more information, call 228-547-1145.
