28 May Clothing and Faith Help the Residents of Houston Rebuild
Organization: Clothed By Faith
Donor: Eddie Bauer
As Told to Good360 by Clothed By Faith
Clothed By Faith, located in Houston, Texas, has a simple mission – to seek out those who need us most and provide them with new or gently used clothing. We do this through specific projects, often at the request of another charitable organization. The clothing has been donated by members of the community, but we make sure that undergarments and socks are always supplied new. We demonstrate God’s love through the provision of gently used clothing to those in need, and recommend volunteers to donate either through money, clothing, and/or time.
We have discovered that 1 in 4 children in Harris County live in poverty, and many are in need of the bare necessities. As word spreads about our work, the number of clients we work with continues to grow, and we need the support of our donors and volunteers more than ever. Thanks to Eddie Bauer, we were able to impact 20+ families with a donation of shirts we gave to our clients in their bag of a weeks’ worth of clothing. A lot of people in our community were affected by Hurricane Harvey and are still trying to rebuild their lives. Throughout Houston there are also significant levels of poverty, and just recently we are seeing an increase in requests from refugees for “American” clothing to help them feel more acclimated.
The gift of clothing from Eddie Bauer that we provide takes away the financial burden from individuals and families, and allows us to provide them with hope & dignity through the gift of good quality new & gently used clothing. Thank you Good360 for all your help, because of organizations like you we are able to give back to the people of Houston!
