Life Lessons From Meet Me At The Conner

By Lynda Smith

  • My Experience

Worded in Clothes Closet at a local church, church was going to knock on a 1000 doors on the 1st Saturday in the month. Church would give back to the community by giving out food baskets; providing transportation back to church campus for individuals that needed, job search, job training and/or clothes.

I worked in Clothes Closet several days prior to event sorting and sizing clothes, shoes and accessories so shoppers could find what they needed quickly, plus shop in a area that was clean and pleasing to the eye; abundant offering of gently used clothing; clothes that I would be proud to own. pleasing environment. The church has been giving out clothes every weekend for some time.

This is a project I can get behind and volunteer with about 4 times a month. Helping shopper look for clothes we talk like any friend or new associates and they share valuable life learning. Everybody is going through something, but we as a people get thru and come out on top as a survivor. People are strong and can go thru stuff, but always end up back on top.
