Wednesday, September 25, 2013 1:00 AM
A concert by the group Altar'd is set for Sunday night, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at Crossway Community Church on Holland Avenue to benefit God's Closet, a ministry of the women of First United Methodist Church.
There will be a love offering accepted during the concert for mission.
God's Closet is now accepting new or gently worn coats, gloves and scarves to add to its collection of school clothes for children in all schools in Neshoba County.
Parents are able to pick up clothes and supplies for their children for the school year free of charge but on a limited basis at God's Closet, which is located in Valley View Shopping Center.
This is to ensure that all area children in need will be able to receive some supplies.
Parents must provide a copy of the child's birth certificate and two proofs of residency to show that they reside in Neshoba County, such as utility bills, homestead exemptions, etc.
Children do not have to be present to register.
God's Closet is open on Saturdays for registration and assistance from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.
Donations are accepted on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until noon. The mission is also seeking donations of school supplies, backpacks, belts, new socks, gently worn uniforms/clothes, tissues, hand sanitizer, clothes hangers, and other supplies.
