Clothing Bank Reopening In Wichita Falls

In response to a growing need in Texoma, the Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in Wichita Falls is reopening its clothing bank doors.

It's what Cleetta Booker calls the answer to her prayers for purpose and a response to a serious need for Texomans from all walks of life.

She said "The Upper Room" has a little bit of everything for everyone, "The children who are waiting for the bus - that are sitting there in flip-flops and it's 20 degrees outside. For the little old lady who's standing on the corner trying to get to the market and she doesn't have a coat on."

In an uncertain economy, whether it's for a suit to nail that job interview, you're a starving student,  or just struggling to make ends meet, Sister Cleetta said you're the perfect candidate and "the upper room" wants to help.

The clothing bank, which looks more like an upscale boutique, is open on Fridays and Saturdays.

The clothes are all donated and free for anyone who comes. All they ask is to allow them to share a simple message - one entered on service for your fellow man.

"What we need now is for the community to know that the clothes are here. you know, so that we can give out what we're getting."

Also, one final message from Sister Olivia Van Zandt, "I would like to speak to the people and let them know that we love them... and that we care... and it's hard times. sometimes all of us are just a paycheck away from needing to come in here and pick something ourselves."

Mount pleasant church officials say they're in it for the long haul, so long as there's a need. If you're interested in donating to the bank or receiving donations, they want to see you!
