Responding to the Needs of our Neighbors in Christian Love

Big Bend Front Porch Ministries

Big Bend Front Porch Ministries in conjunction with Calvary United Methodist Church is asking you to join us in collecting socks and underwear for McKenzie’s Clothes Closet during the 2019 Advent season.  In order to encourage people to donate, we would like to invite you to host a church “Undie Sunday” (sock and underwear drive) between now and the end of the year. 

McKenzie’s Closet serves well over 125 clients every week and has an ongoing need for all types and sizes of underwear and socks.  While most clothing we provide is gently used, we try to give new underwear and socks to clients on an as needed basis. The members of Calvary usually provide these items out of their own pocket, but with a very small congregation (25 regular attendees) help of our United Methodist brothers and sisters is needed.

McKenzie’s Closet serves the west side of Tallahassee with a no charge clothing closet each Monday and 2nd Saturday from 8:30 – noon.  We give away donated items for men, women, and children of all ages and all means.  Many of our clients are homeless, but the closet is not restricted based on income. We give as much or as little as we have to offer. 

Donations can be brought during the days and hours when there is someone present at the closet.  Mondays from 8:30 AM – Noon and Wednesdays from 11:00am to 4:00pm.

Call Mike Toluba at 850-544-7087 or email mike@fsuwesley.com if you need someone to come and pick up your sock and underwear donations. Thank you for your help!

Have a blessed Christmas and New Year,
