Our Spring 2021 Event
Our 2021 Clothing Giveaway was held March 19th-20th. Following a tumultuous 2020 that saw many charitable agencies unable to operate at full capacity or accept clothing donations, the need for clothing resources was greater than ever, as was the desire to give. We received the largest donation of clothing, shoes, and bedding in our history. We served over 130 families over the two days of our event.
THANK YOU to everyone who donated, and to everyone who assisted with sorting, setting up, displaying, and assisting customers at the event.

What is it?
Each Spring, typically the Saturday at the end of Southeast Polk School District's Spring Break, Family Church holds a FREE Clothing Giveaway for the community in our auditorium. Over the years, we have distributed much needed clothing items to hundreds of families in our neighborhoods. On the same day, we also host a Rummage Sale in the fellowship hall, with thousands of household items, collectibles, sporting goods, tools, kitchenware, electronics, baby and toddler items and toys, and much more. The items are priced well below market value, and the proceeds go toward Family Church's missions projects.
We are prayerfully considering the addition of a Fall event this year to help meet this urgent need in our community. Please check back for more details!
How Can I Help?
Throughout the year, consider putting aside clothing you no longer need, in anticipation of our Clothing Giveaway. We typically begin collecting items in February each year!
In addition, if you are planning a move, or as you organize closets, redecorate, or sort through all that stuff in your basement, consider donating your unneeded items to our Rummage Sale.
Finally, keep an eye out here on this page for ways you can volunteer for the next Clothing Giveaway and Rummage Sale. We typically need people to help sort and display clothing and items throughout the week leading up to the sale. We also need helping hands during the event to assist customers. What a great way to serve your neighbors!
