New Providence Baptist Church will host its Bi-Annual Free Clothing, Shoes and More Giveaway on Saturday, October 1. The event will get underway at 9 a.m. Items will given away on a first come, first serve basis.
The annual giveaway gives people an opportunity to pick up new and gently used items, including shoes, jewelry, coats, and accessories, that they otherwise would not be able to buy for themselves or their families.
Items will be available for men, women, infants and children. Other merchandise that may also be available include car seats, playpens, strollers, walkers, wheelchairs, bicycles, toys and books.
Lines tend to form early and be long, so anyone interested in attending the giveaway should plan to arrive early. The items generally run out before noon.
