JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two churches in Region 8 held a clothing giveaway on Saturday. 

Fisher Street and Cornerstone United Methodist Churches in Jonesboro gathered items including clothing, cereal, and toiletries to help those in need. 

"We do the clothing drives twice a year, we do one in the spring for summer and spring clothing and then we do another one in the fall," said clothing drive coordinator, Chelsea Watkins.  "It seems like every year more people are aware of the event and we always have people that come back and thank us."

Watkins says the experience is rewarding each time.  

"We kind of get to see those same kids and those same families and so we kind of get to see those kids grow up," she said.  

She said everything they give away was donated. 

Anyone is welcome to drop clothing off at either of the churches if they would like to donate to the next drive.
