Bag Your Blessings donations accepted

Summer just officially began for the kiddos, but an area church is already gearing up for the next school year.
BAG YOUR BLESSINGS Clothes Give Away is set for Sat., Aug. 1 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., according to Bev Barker.
Donations will be accepted as early as Mon., June 15. The popular event will be held at Erin Springs Church of God, located at 14028 E. County Road 1518, south of Lindsay on Hwy. 76, or just south of the Washita River bridge. Parking lot security will be provided.
“I received a call this past week from a friend, (who has supported my ministry projects both physically and financially for years) telling me that her boyfriend, ‘Lee,’ was interested in helping with the projects as well. Long story short…Lee wrote up a grant for financial assistance for the ‘BAG YOUR BLESSINGS’ clothes give-away. It was approved! This year, the ‘BAG YOUR BLESSINGS’ clothes give-away will also include giving away NEW underwear for boys, NEW panties and bras for girls, along with socks, deodorant, and more. Isn’t that remarkable???!!! THANK YOU, LEE AND KELLY!!!” Ms. Barker added.
“During the last clothes give away that was held at the Maysville Assembly of God, when I attended there, I had enough donations to give away some school supplies. That’s my goal for this year as well – things such as notebooks, pencils, glue sticks, etc. – generic supplies no matter the grade,” Ms. Barker continued.
Clothing donations needed are MAINLY for kids’/teens’ clothes for school. Clothing will be accepted BEGINNING Mon., June 15, and lasting through Wed., July 15. That will give the most recent clothes donations two weeks quarantined in plastic bags before the give-away. Clothes should be placed in bags that tie at the top. Clothes can be dropped off at Ms. Barker’s ‘Lord’s Ford’ 2001 pickup parked in the parking lot at the Senior Citizen building Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Donations of school supplies can also be placed in the back of Ms. Barker’s ‘Lord’s Ford’. There is a need for backpacks, as well.
“With your help, BAG YOUR BLESSINGS will be the greatest clothes give-away blessing ever in our area, county, state! May God bless YOU and may God bless Erin Springs Church of God, and may God bless BAG YOUR BLESSINGS!” Ms. Barker concluded.
Those who have questions may contact Ms. Barker at 405-756-7403 or Pastor Doug Brothers at 405-428-6575.
