Christ Church on Quaker Hill is sponsoring a clothing drop off shed as an on-going fundraiser for the church’s operating budget and as a service to the community. St Pauly Textile has installed a clothing collection shed for the community’s use. The clothing will be distributed all over the United States and the world to those who can use it. Christ Church will in turn receive 8 cents for every pound of clothing that is donated.

As part of this arrangement, Christ Church is permitted to evaluate and keep any clothing that would be appropriate for our Church’s mission outreach programs such as mid-night run or helping a family dealing with a personal need. This program is part of a larger fundraising program and helps Christ Church meet budgetary needs, keeps clothing out of landfills and helps others in need outside our community. The shed is for clothing related items only and not electronics, household or toy items.

Christ Church on Quaker Hill is located at 17 Church Street, Pawling, NY 12564. Christ Church is an ecumenical, interdenominational Christian congregation open to all persons on a journey of faith. The Mission Statement reads: “The mission of Christ Church is to provide a nurturing environment in which all people can grow in personal faith, discover their gifts, and us them to become living examples of God’s vision through Jesus Christ.” For more information about Christ Church, please visit www.ccoqh.org.
