We have started a new endeavor at John Wesley: an ongoing clothing collection to help fill the Antietam Academy Clothing Closet! The Antietam Academy Clothing Closet, run under the direction of Tim and Lori M., is for all ages, students as well as their families, and is run in conjunction with Antietam Academy’s food pantry.
Academy students and their families may utilize the clothing closet when needed. All types, styles and sizes of clothing are accepted (casual, job interview, male, female, baby to adult).
Students help organize the clothing to earn student service hours and learn job skills. But perhaps more importantly, while working in the Clothing Closet students learn empathy by helping others in need.
So, as you’re looking through your closet, if you find you have some “gently used” clothing that you no longer need, bring it in. There will be a box in the back of the chapel marked Antietam Academy Clothing Closet.
