Local church gives away clothes to the needy

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Trinity Church of the Nazarene in Yakima held a clothing giveaway Saturday.

This is the churches 8th time holding this event.
 
Through clothing donations from people in the community as well as local businesses, the church is able to giveaway clothes about twice a year.

In the past they've had up to 800 people show up for an event.

Pastor Don Thompson says he's happy to be able to give back to the community.

"We didn't want to just be on the corner and not affect our community. We wanted to be involved in the lives of the people around the church. We want to be involved year round in helping the people in our area," said Pastor Thompson.

They usually hold the giveaway in both fall and spring and have items ranging from baby clothes, up to adults.
