Karie Jean’s Closet is on the move

To the Editor:

Karie Jean’s Closet, which for nearly three years has provided clothing to people in need, has moved to a larger space.

Formerly located in the First United Methodist Church, the shop has moved to 50 Voorheesville Ave. in Voorheesville, beside the car wash.

We work with several schools, senior outreach programs, a few nursing homes, two homeless shelters and other local agencies. The agencies identify those in need and we provide free private shopping.

We think of it as “shopping with dignity,” a chance to select items you need in a store like setting.

How can you help? Here’s how:

— Shop with us. We have beautiful name-brand clothing at very reasonable prices. All proceeds are used to support our mission;

— Donate clothing. We are currently accepting spring and summer clothing;

— Volunteer your time. Store hours are Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., Wednesday from noon to 7 p.m., and Thursday from noon to 4 p.m.;

— Make a monetary donation. Donations help keep this mission moving forward.

“By the Grace of God, the effort of all involved is making a positive mark on our church and our community, and most of all, keeping Karie Jean’s name in the public eye. Thank you all,” says Pat Klose-Hammond,  proud mother of the late Karie Jean.

We are 100-percent volunteer run, 100-percent donated goods, 100-percent non-profit.
