ANNA'S CLOSET -Is a ministry to clothe the needy in
South Africa. Anna's Closet is one of two projects dedicated to the memory
of my daughter Anna. We are
shipping used clothes overseas. baby clothes, children's clothes, teenagers
clothes, and adult clothes are all badly needed in the poorest areas.
Anyone who knew Anna knew she had a closet full of clothes that overflowed.
She was always giving things away. In honor of Anna, we have named this
program after her.
If you have any used clothing, please send it to
South Africa. There is a great need for blankets, especially in the winter
months. In South Africa the temperature can drop below zero degrees in
July and August. There are many "squatters" and refugees who have no shelter
or homes. Blankets are needed and freely given to help keep them warm.
You may send blankets or the funds to buy blankets.
Can your church take up a "clothes offering?" Here's a great
opportunity to meet needs. Jesus said in Matt.25:36...."I was naked and
you clothed me." If you want to fulfill God's command to clothe the
naked - here is your opportunity!!
Items should be washed, no holes or buttons missing.
Used shoes are great - mens, boys, womens (no high heels please), girls,
and especially children’s. Tennis shoes are great! Mens dress shoes are
welcome. Mens old suits, shirts, ladies skirts, blouses, purses, sweaters,
coats, undergarments, scarves, and handkerchiefs (mens and womens).
We previously shipped 40,000 pounds of clothes to
South Africa - some went into Mozambique. People were so grateful
to receive the much needed items. The missions team reported back that
many people wept as they were given a bowl of soup and the clothing along
with gospel tracts.
