Clay County Outreach Extends a Hand

All across Texoma schools are back in session. As some parents check off their list of school supplies, other parents are looking to other means for a way to just get by and provide their children with the basics.

Newschannel 6 is told that ten new families recently came through the Clay County Outreach doors needing school supplies and clothing for their children. 

Newschannel 6 took a tour of the facility and saw the shelves stocked and ready with plenty of food and clothing to help families in need.

Clay County Outreach Director, Mildred Gannon says, "There has been a lot of times that there has been teary eyes because they have never had to do this before. We are here for everyone that needs help."


It is not always easy to ask for help, but Clay County Outreach  has been serving its community members for decades. They say they will never turn anyone away especially when times are tough in a rough economy.

   
Mildred Gannon comments, "I am very pleased that God has given me the strength to do this because I'm 80 years old." And it is Mildred Gannon's strength and dedication along with her volunteers that keeps the only outreach facility in Clay County running.

 
Clay County Outreach provides for families weekly giving basic necessities most of us take for granted. Right now it is school supplies that are flying off the shelves.


Mildred tells Newschannel 6, "School supplies are expensive and I could see why it would be hard for them to get everything that is on the list." And Mildred adds it is the glow on those kiddos faces that light up her day.   

Clay County Outreach relies on donations and volunteers. Volunteers are most needed the third Tuesday of every month for grocery hand out.

If you would like to volunteer your time contact Clay County Outreach at (940) 538 - 4998.

Clay County Outreach  is open Wednesday's and Friday's from 10am to noon. And every third Tuesday of every month from 9 to 3pm.
