To the Editor: The need for clothing remains a very basic human necessity. Many families in our community continue to struggle to support, provide for, and clothe their families in this challenging economic climate.
In partnership with the local branch of the Needlework Guild of America (NGA), during the month of October, I will be collecting new socks and underwear to be donated to local families and individuals. During this drive, we are only asking for socks and underwear.
To make a donation of new socks or underwear, please drop them off at my district office at 19 S. York Road in Hatboro. If anyone wants to make another type of new clothing donation, NGA has an active local branch that meets weekly at the Hatboro Baptist Church Annex located on North York Road. If you would like to donate, volunteer, or participate in the NGA, please call 267-240-6940 for more information.
