Gently used clothes being accepted for clothing giveaway

By Sally Neel

Special to The PREVIEW

The women of St. Patrick’s are now accepting gently used clothes for their annual Clothing Giveaway, scheduled for Saturday morning, Oct. 16.

This important annual event assures men, women and children an opportunity to receive warm winter clothes free of charge. Winter months in Colorado can bring bitter cold and, thanks to the women of St. Patrick’s and the generosity of the community, no one in Pagosa Springs should have to suffer due to lack of warm clothes.

Please bring your freshly washed clothing to Airport Storage on Piedra Road on Saturday mornings between 10 a.m. and noon. An attendant will be available to receive your donations. Please do not drop them off at non-designated times. It is a great help if you will separate and mark sacks of clothing according to gender and size. All types of clothing are welcome, but particularly clothing for winter months.
