Monthly Collections

July & August is Clothe a Child for School Clothing Month!

The Love Clothing Center is open every other Saturday of the year to help with clothing for school aged children. Christian Services takes the requests for clothing and makes appointments for families in need. Judson serves an average of 24 families each month except for August & September. In those months they are open Wednesdays and Saturdays and extend their hours to serve 24 families each week. That’s clothing for over 400 children in August and September alone! Many more families don’t get appointments because of the high demand and limited space.

How does Judson Memorial Baptist Church sustain this ministry? Only with the support of the Church Network. They depend on donations of new and like new clothing and funds to purchase needed items. All children’s clothing is helpful but especially needed are new socks and underwear, and new or like new school uniforms.
