I went to the free clothes exchange at First Baptist Church on Oct. 9 looking for clothes, but what I found was an angel! Her name is Inga; she welcomed me and made me feel at ease as soon as I came in.
Mr. Jorge, who is Spanish-speaking, welcomed me and kindly ushered me into the church. Their parking lot is adjacent to Haynes Park and is clean and well lit.
Inside the church, it was very clean, all the clothes were beautifully displayed and folded, and the tables were full. Mr. Dean made me laugh as I looked through the clothes for the right size!
Thank you! They accept donations for gently used or new clothes for kids and adults, and are open at 7 a.m. every second Saturday of the month at First Baptist Church.
