The clothing will be distributed all over the United States and the world to those who can use it. Faith Fellowship Baptist Church will in turn receive 4 cents for every pound of clothing that is donated.

The shed is located at the back of the parking lot which is well lit so donations can be dropped off anytime. Call the church at 330-650-3744 with questions about the shed and items that can be donated.
