The St. Francis Clothing Drive
The Church of the Nativity and The Church of the Presentation
Local Parishes join together to host Clothing Drive Nativity Church, Midland Park and Presentation Church, Upper Saddle River to collect and distribute to those in need The St. Francis Closet, a ministry partnership between the Church of the Nativity, Midland Park and Church of the Presentation, Upper Saddle River is sponsoring a clothing drive on Saturday, October 19 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at both parishes. “This newly formed ministry provides an avenue for our community to provide goods from our abundance to the needy in our surrounding areas,” said Tia Patterson of Nativity, co-chair of the event. Gently used fall and winter clothing will be collected and distributed to local community programs that serve men, women, and children in need. Two drop off locations on the day of the event have been established – Church of the Nativity, Kennedy Hall, 315 Prospect Street, Midland Park and Church of the Presentation, Large Community Room, 271 West Saddle River Road, Upper Saddle River. The ministry kindly requests that all clothing donations be laundered and in wearable condition when delivered to the drop off locations on the day of the event, otherwise they will not be accepted for distribution. Organizations benefitting from this much needed event include: Suits for Success, Oasis, Jericho Road Shelter, Emmanuel Cancer Foundation, Nurturing Place/York Street Shelter, Star of Hope Mission, Shelter our Sisters, Eva’s Village & Shelter, and Mother Teresa’s Harlem Shelter.
