Help with winter clothes drive

It’s the final day of the Winter “Phlash” Drive Challenge organized by the Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce. Until 5 p.m. today, the chamber, in partnership with the Salvation Army, will accept donations of gently used children’s clothing.

Aside from basic items, children are in desperate need of winter clothing like coats, hats, scarves and gloves, and the Salvation Army is in desperate need of these items in all children’s sizes.

With the holidays in full swing, it’s easy to get caught up in our own plans and lists and responsibilities. Let’s not forget about those in need this holiday season, especially those within our community. Let’s do all we can to give this holiday season.

You can deliver your donations directly to the Salvation Army at 2649 West Oxford Loop or to the Oxford Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce, located at 299 Jackson Avenue West.
