All proceeds go toward the purchase of new children’s clothing to help meet critical community need

Joseph’s Coat will host a garage sale of upscale and vintage women’s clothing, accessories and brand new golf attire Friday, Jan. 15, 9 .m. – 2 p.m. and Saturday, Jan.  16, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m., in Smith Worship Center, St. Andrew United Methodist Church, 1401 Mira Vista, Plano, Texas 75093. All proceeds will go towards purchasing much needed children’s size clothing.

“Joseph’s Coat, a clothing closet that provides an average of 4,000 garments each month to Collin County families in need, desperately needs some children’s size clothing for families seeking assistance,” said Becky Jones, Seven Loaves Community.  “This is a generous community, and we receive some wonderful donations all throughout the year.  A large majority of donations are adult clothing, but we received limited children’s clothing. It is our hope that the garage sale will generate funds to supplement this tremendous need.”

The garage sale is open to the public.  For questions, visit 7loavescommunity.org.  The community may also drop off any donations of children’s clothing at Seven Loaves, 1401 Mira Vista, north entrance.  A drop box for Joseph’s Coat is also available in the north parking lot off of Mira Vista at St. Andrew United Methodist Church.

Seven Loaves Community was established in 2009.   The Food Pantry, the first initiative of Seven Loaves Community, serves an average of 550 families a month.  In 2014, more than 829,000 pounds of food was distributed.  The program includes Joseph’s Coat, a clothing closet, which provides an average of 4,000 garments each month; Project Hope, a mentoring program to support women in crisis; and Plus One, providing hygiene products to clients. An estimated 130,000 people in Collin County live below the poverty level, more than half of which are children.  www.7loavescommunity.org
