An annual church event helps to clothe the community in Charlottesville.
The missionary ministry at Mount Zion First African Baptist church held their annual clothing giveaway.
On Saturday morning they brought clothes out in the parking lot of the church to give to people in need for free.
There were clothes for men, women and children, along with shoes and furniture.
“One of the things that we have to remember is that we've been blessed by the Lord and that I believe that if he blesses you then you have to bless someone else's life and share with them,” says Dr. Alvin Edwards, pastor of the church. “So it makes you feel good, but at the same time it's a good opportunity just to give back to people who have given to you.”
The clothes that were left over after the giveaway were donated to the clothing closet at the United Methodist Church in Charlottesville.
