Thanks for the generous response to Undie Sunday, sponsored by United Methodist Women.
The new undies have been donated to the Portland PTA Clothing Center, whose purpose is to furnish age-appropriate, new and gently used clothing for children in school programs.
Once a child is referred to the center, he or she may visit the center two times a year. The Center is operated completely by volunteers and clothing donations are always welcome.
Cash donations are used to purchase new jeans, underwear and socks. The Clothing Center, which is celebrating 50 years of service, provided clothing for 1,920 students this past year.
