Pickens YMCA to host Christmas Clothing Drive

PICKENS — The Pickens YMCA will host Kris Blackmon with Miracle Hill Children’s Home on Thursday, Dec. 19, at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room for a Christmas clothing drive.

Clothes needed are for boys and girls size 4 to youth extra large with a special need for pajamas. The clothes can be used as long as they are clean and in good shape. However, they do prefer to have new pajamas for the children.

The YMCA will be serving holiday cookies and eggnog! Please stop by on the 19th and receive further information on how you can help the ministry of Miracle Hill with children in need.

“It is my understanding that when these young children come to Miracle Hill, it is with only the clothes on their backs,” wellness coordinator Dennis Loftis said. “Imagine how good it would feel to have some clothes to put on and a new pair of pajamas to sleep in. Please help us make this Christmas special to young children in need. On behalf of everyone at the YMCA we would just like to say thank you and Merry Christmas.”

For more information, please call the YMCA at (864) 878-8380.
