A recent need for used clothing for residents of Cherokee County who are less fortunate than others is currently under way.
Several volunteers have been busy organizing a clothing drive called "Godwill Donations" and are trying to help others stay warm during the upcoming harsh winter months.
Clothing donations are now being accepted for school age children at St. Paul's United Methodist Church in Cherokee.
Items needed are children's boots, coats, snow pants, all types of winter outerwear and blankets. Adult coats are also needed.
If you are interested in donating any of these items you can drop them off any time during the week at St. Paul's United Methodist Church located at 531 W. Main St.
Clothing items may be picked up at the church on Saturdays during the month of December from noon to 5 p.m. downstairs south facing double doors.
One of the organizers, Karen Long stated, "We already have a lot of items available, they just need the word out so they can get picked up."
If people can't make the Saturday pick-ups, you can call Long of an appointment.
For more information call St. Paul's United Methodist Church at 225-3955, Karen Long at 229-9387 or Cara Beazley at 229-9513.
Donated items will be accepted until the end of December. If you would like to make a monitory donation you can donate to St Paul's United Methodist Church at 531 W. Main St. Cherokee, Iowa 51012.
