BROOKLAND, Ark. (KAIT) - Lots of clothing was given away at the Brookland United Methodist Church Friday and Saturday to provide a helping hand to people.
The church hosted their annual “Clothing Giveaway” to help those in need.
The event served over 200 people and gave away more than 500 bags filled with clothing.
Megan Heyl, founder and coordinator of the giveaway, said that when the event started they didn’t know the impact that it would have across the region.
“It’s families who have lost everything, due to situations like a house fire, or being evicted, or domestic situations where a mother has had to live with just the clothes on her back and her kids, lots of foster parents,” said Heyl. “It’s amazing the reach that we’ve had, to reach people who are really, really in need.”
