Oklahoma City, Oklahoma—With winter around the corner, the Residents of Epworth Villa held their annual fall clothing drive. This bi-annual event allows residents to clean out their closets and give their items to Skyline Urban Ministries located in Oklahoma City.

Jan Neel, Epworth Resident said, “I had a closet of good coats and I only need one. I can help keep others warm this winter with the coats that I am not wearing.” Each year in the fall and spring there is a clothing drive at Epworth Villa.

Skyline workers said they love receiving donations from Epworth Villa because of the quality and care that goes into providing items. Johnny, a Skyline Volunteers said, “We also like the clothes Epworth Villa donates for our “Dress for Success” patrons.”

This fall the Residents gathered 845 pounds of warm clothing and coats for Skyline.

Epworth Villa is a non-profit, Life Plan Retirement Community located in north Oklahoma City. Visit them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/EpworthVilla.
