Fincastle United Methodist Church has handled a clothing closet at the Family Life Center and thanks to the generosity of Andre and Joyce Hilliou of Fincastle, they now have a Main Street location across from the courthouse.
For more than five years the clothing closet has been located in the Family Life Center and carted out of a closet every month during the SHARE program, a low cost grocery program held at the church. During the weekdays the church secretary had been allowing those in need to peruse the clothing supply.
The Family Life Center will remain the sorting spot for donations. Rhonda Campbell, who heads the program for the church, has a committee of volunteers to help man the hours at the new site.
Tuesdays and Saturdays coincide with Christian Free Clinic hours at Fincastle Baptist Church on Tuesdays and the Botetourt Food Pantry at St. Mark’s Episcopal and SHARE on Saturdays.The outreach provides clothing for children and adults at no charge. Gently worn clothing, particularly women’s plus sizes and larger size men’s clothing, are currently a source of need and donations will be appreciated.
The location is #2 Main Street, parking is available on the street and surrounding the courthouse. Hours are Tuesdays from 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m and 3 to 7 p.m and on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.on all of those days in the month of April.
