Christina Discello Talks About Community Clothes Closet

 
Christina Discello, Director of 'The Community Clothes Closet' (CCC) in New Kensington, spoke to the club about her passion.  The Community Clothes Closet was created to help adults of our community who are experiencing financial hardship.  It is their hope that by providing clothing and personal hygiene essentials at extremely reasonable prices, that our neighbors will be able to expand their limited income.  Christina related that no one is turned away, regardless of their ability to pay.  Customers are able to take their time and shop for the items they need rather that driving to Pittsburgh or Greensburg.  Items on the CCC wish list are quality new or gently used clothing and footwear, volunteers, and financial donations.  CCC also has an immediate and on-going need for diapers as low income recipients can no longer purchase them on their card.  The CCC is located at 319 Tenth Street in New Kensington and it is a social outreach ministry of Mount Saint Peters Parish.  Hours are generally 11AM -1pm Mondays, 6-8PM - Wednesdays, and 10AM-1PM on Saturdays.    Phone number is 724-289-6528
