FREE clothes for school aged children.
Lakewood Church of Christ will be holding its 17th annual Back to School Clothing Give-Away on Saturday, August 19th at 8 a.m… The purpose of the Clothing Give-Away is to help children from the Baytown area in need of clothing to begin the new school year. Each family receives a package of new socks and new underwear for each child, along with gently used clothing and shoes for the entire family.
No registration, pre-qualification or financial information is required in order to take advantage of the clothing give-away. Families in need of clothing should bring their children to the Lakewood Church of Christ, 7701 Bayway Drive, in Baytown, on Saturday, August 19th at 8 a.m. in order to be served.
Donations are still being accepted for this year’s Give-Away. Items needed are gently used boy’s and girl’s jeans sizes 4-16; girl's jeans junior sizes 1-11; children's and teens' tennis shoes; and new, unopened packages of children's socks and/or underwear. In addition, monetary donations are being accepted to purchase any sizes we are short on. Donations may be taken to Lakewood Church of Christ, 7701 Bayway Drive, in Baytown, Monday – Thursday during office hours from 9 a.m. – noon and 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
We will also be accepting donations at our table in the Christmas In July Market at the Baytown Community Center on July 22nd, 10 am — 4 pm.
The church not only provides for families on the day of the give-away, but also has clothing available to those in need year round. The congregation works closely with area school counselors to identify those who need additional help. If you are unable to donate for the upcoming give-away, please keep in mind that donations of clothing for school age children are accepted year round.
