Clothing giveaway for all

BOZEMAN – In the spirit of Thanksgiving, the public is invited to the sixth annual Thanks-4-Giving Clothing Giveaway, where attendants can find free, gently used clothing, shoes and outerwear from infant to adult sizes.

The two-day event is set for the weekend of Nov. 23-24 at the Willson School Gym. Hours are 9 a.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturday and 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Incredible community support has turned what started as a single elementary school project into a community-wide event.

“We have everyone from senior citizens to elementary school students who come together making Thanks-4-Giving a huge success,” said Aloha Williams, a volunteer who joined the group in its second year.

“It is such a simple idea for our community to share what we already have in our closets,” says Reni Kessinger, Thanks-4-Giving founder. “Every parent has clothing their child has outgrown, and this event gets those clothes out into our community and into the hands of people who can use them.”

Gently used clothing items, sorted and labeled according to size and gender, can be donated at the gym’s South Fifth Ave. entrance, Nov. 19 – 22, between 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.
