Clothing the evacuees of Katrina

Graceworks need your help!

O my gosh - look at that 16 foot mountain! Posted by Picasa

Do you have the faith to move mountains? The above photo is just one corner of donated clothes that the Nashville area has generously donated; however Graceworks needs volunteers to help with sorting donated items for hurricane victims so the items can be shipped out to the states affected.

The job is easy - sort clothes by gender into men, women and children piles, separate the soiled clothing out as the Salvation Army will process those clothes and trash the filthy clothes that are landfill quality (c'mon people - what are you thinking!) One hour of your time after work hours will make a difference in clothing a family and now the need may be even greater with Hurricane Rita on the way.

When: 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays-Fridays and 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.

Where: Graceworks in Franklin, TN. Take Mack Hatcher Parkway to Columbia Avenue and turn right on Southeast Parkway. Mapquest

How: Call (615) 794-9055.
