Jacob’s Closet helps those in need

| January 21, 2016

WARSAW – Several years ago when realizing there were several vacant rooms that were not being used, an idea was brought forward to the members. Rev. Ron Little, pastor at that time, suggested the possibility of starting a free clothes closet for those in need, thinking of those needing clothes for job interviews, warm school clothes, or anyone that may need a little help. The community has been very generous in giving donations of clean, slightly used clothing. Members donate their time and energy every Thursday 9 a.m. to noon to greet people and help find what may be needed. Anyone is welcome to visit Jacob’s Closet at the Warsaw United Methodist Church on Church Street. In case of winter weather, call 740-824-3228 to see if the closet will be closed. Do not leave donations outside the church because of wet weather. Use the side entrance any weekday from 9 a.m. to noon. Worship service is Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.
