Clothing distribution offered Aug. 25

The Clothing Crusade is a non-profit, faith-based organization in Hudson that collects and distributes clothing to the less fortunate.

The Peter Maurin Center and the Clothing Crusade have formed a partnership to again offer clothing this year.

PMC will host a Clothing Fair in its Community Center at 1096 S. Main St., Akron, on Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Clothing Crusade will offer clothing for all ages and hopefully give guests the feeling of selecting clothes from a store.

The Peter Maurin Center (PMC) is an Outreach Ministry serving the Greater Summit Lake Region of Akron. The center is located at 1090 and 1096 S. Main St. operating as a day drop-in Community Center and Dining Hall. The center offers three hot full meals weekly, clothing, fresh on premise garden, used bicycles/repairs, bus passes, after school programs, and medical screening/referrals. On average, the center serves 1,550 hot meals each month.

Meals are offered Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays from 1 to 3 p.m. The center operates solely from the generosity of individuals, organizations, and churches (no government subsidies). The center is always in need of backpacks, toiletries, and clothing. Call director Jim Orenga at 330-414-5639 (jporenga@gmail.com) for more information.
