We want your pants. Not the ones you're wearing right now, but your gently used pants that you would be willing to give to charity. Community Christian Church is partnering with several businesses in Northwest Arkansas to accept clothing that will be passed on to LifeSource International.
LifeSource International is in desperate need of used men's clothing. LifeSource offers free resources for low income families. This includes a food pantry, after-school events, summer camp, counseling, as well as a clothing bank. Community Christian church is holding a clothing drive for men's clothing, as LifeSource is critically short this summer. Hence, the "Summer of Pants".
"Having access to clean clothing in good repair can positively impact job prospects, opportunities to succeed in life, not to mention emotional well-being," Pastor Nathan Wainwright said. "That's why we are asking you to donate your gently used men's clothing during the month of August."
The drive runs August 1 - August 31, 2017.
To sweeten the deal, Guitar Center in Fayetteville will donate one ukulele to LifeSource for after-school music classes for every 100 pounds of clothing the drive receives.
Clothing can be dropped off directly at LifeSource (602 South School Avenue in Fayetteville), or at one of the drop off locations listed below.
