Come check us out at New Life Nazarene Church 1002 8th Street for free clothing. It's in the basement so we apologize for not being handicap accessible. We accept donations when we're open. If you have any size 8 girls or boys jeans to share, we'd appreciate them. Our rack is pretty empty. We very much appreciate all contributions so we can continue to help those in need.
