First Baptist Offers Clothing Closet

First Baptist Church in Greenville is offering a spring and summer clothing closet for the whole family on Saturday, March 17, from 8 a.m. until noon. Some prom dresses will be featured as well. They are intended for girls who would otherwise not be able to purchase a dress. There will be a drawing for free hair and makeup on prom day. Stylists include Kimmie Bourgeois and Ivan Saylor. Winners must sign up in person and be present for the drawing which will be held at 11:30 a.m. followed by a light lunch.

The church is asking for donations of clean and gently used clothing to help those in need. Items can be dropped by the church at the east (Spruce Street) door between 8 a.m. and noon on weekdays until March 10. Arrangements for pick up can be made by calling the church office at 618-664-1062. First Baptist Church is located at 218 E. South Avenue.
