‘Helping Hands’ at East Rowan High starts clothes drive for the needy

A group of students at East Rowan High School are collecting clothes and shoes of all sizes, from infant to adult.

The items collected will be offered for free to people in need from across Rowan County. That event will be held from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. April 20, a Saturday, at the high school.

Cost of admission will be $1, and those attending will be given bags for collecting the clothes they choose. No other charges are involved.

The admission money collected will go toward The Crisis House in Salisbury.

Food Lion is donating the brown bags used for holding clothes.

Drop-off points for the clothing donations are at East Rowan YMCA and East Rowan High, near the office.

Clothes or items such as belts and shoes should be in good condition and clean. Items will be collected until April 15.

Any clothing items left over will be donated to Rowan Helping Ministries, Nazareth Children’s Home or other organizations that might need them.

In addition to East Rowan High students, who have dubbed their group “ER Helping Hands,” the Junior Civitans at Erwin Middle School also are helping with the clothes drive.

A trailer at the high school will be used to store items.

For more information, contact Christine Sparger at 704-798-9675.

  “I know a ton of people in Rowan County who could use the help,” Sparger said.
