Clothing helps families of modest means

The 2013-2014 School year is fast approaching and as families clean out our children’s dressers and closets, they are encouraged to remember those who are less fortunate. Donating gently used clothing to an agency such as North Country Ministry, with its outreach center on Main Street in Warrensburg, is a wonderful way to help a youngster who would otherwise have nothing new to wear, start their year off right.

The Salvation Army Community Center, located at 13 Chester St. in Glens Falls is now accepting applications by phone for their Shoes for Kids program. This program gives out vouchers for a pair of shoes for income-eligible families. To determine if your family qualifies, call the Salvation Army at 792-1960 to schedule an appointment.


Another enterprise helping families prepare their children for the new school year is Warren-Hamilton Community Action Agency. This entity helps students with basic needs such as, notebooks, pencils and pens, crayons, glue sticks and a backpack. To request an application, call them at 793-0636.
