The Church of the Advocate: The Clothes Closet is out of men’s T-shirts, underwear, white socks, jeans, shorts, and sneakers. And we’re really low on khaki pants, belts, caps, and button-down shirts (short- or long-sleeved). As for our women, we’re out of casual dresses (our most popular item), sneakers/sandals/flip-flops, and can always use handbags. Other than these items our women are well supplied. We’re still out of sleeping bags, backpacks, and totes. Our homeless congregation is larger than usual this summer, so your donations are especially needed and very much appreciated.

The flowers are to the glory of God and in loving memory of

Marvin Reynolds McClatchey

and in celebration of the marriage of Ali Flanagan and Landon Brown.
