I read in today’s Metro Spirit, the Whine Line, this whine:
“The Columbia County News Times is not asking for donations of children’s underwear this year. What (who) changed?”
Here is what changed. Child Enrichment runs a “Clothing Closet” for needy children. The last two years we have been desperate for underwear, diapers and socks for children: both genders, all sizes.
This year, we have had successful drives and other donations which have stocked our closet. So, this year, we didn’t reach out to the Columbia County News-Times for them to conduct a drive.
We do have an urgent need for boys clothing: good condition, used or new jeans, pants and shirts in all sizes. And we almost always need diapers.
Clothing donations are accepted by Child Enrichment, Inc., Tuesdays from 1-3 p.m. and Thursdays from 10 a.m.-noon. These times may change in January 2016, so call 706-737-4631 if you need additional information.
Thank you. Merry Christmas and have a wonderful 2016.
Dan Hillman, executive director
