North Carolina Parish Distributes Clothing to the Needy

On Saturday, May 15/28, 2011, Fr. Anastasios Hudson and parishioners of Nativity of the Holy Theotokos Greek Orthodox Church in Greenville, North Carolina distributed clothing to over 300 people. Utilizing a dropbox, the Church collects donations of clothing until there is a sufficient amount in reserve, and then puts the clothing on the front lawn of the Church property. Through advertising, and prominently-placed signage, members of the community who are in need are alerted to the program and arrive to collect the free clothing.

The program is held approximately once a quarter, and this time over 300 people were served! Also, this distribution was featured on a local news channel. You can see a video of the event here:
