Free clothing giveaway at the Metcalfe County Schools

EDMONTON, Ky.- Staff from a local school district are once again helping the families of students with the gift of clothing.

The Metcalfe County free clothing giveaway is spearheaded by the district’s Family Resource Youth Service centers. Anyone with children enrolled in the school district can pick up free clothes through the whole week.

Everything from shirts, shoes, and even Metcalfe County Schools apparel is available for pickup. All of these items are donated. The clothes are a mix of used and new. There’s something here for all ages.

Members of the family resource youth service centers say it’s crucial to provide these items for families, especially during this pandemic era.

“It’s great, because with the pandemic and everything going on, we’ve missed out on a lot of events. It’s great to be able to come back and open it up to come get c

lothes for their kids,” said youth services coordinator with Metcalfe County Middle and High school Judy Thompson

“It’s just a blessing to be here. We have many children who need clothes. Some parents can’t afford them with jobs and stuff right now. It’s really been a blessing,” added Metcalfe County Elementary family resource center coordinator Patty Bunch.

The giveaway will be held through Aug. 13. It’s from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Metcalfe Elementary Primary gym.
