The Cornerstone Clothing Bank Etc. is a classic example of community support! Our volunteers carefully screen and sort donated clothes, shoes, toys and household items for distribution to individuals and families in need. In 2015 we gave away 69,674 articles of clothing, not including books, small furniture, housewares and toys!
Our Clothing Bank Etc is located down the driveway around back of 3 Prospect Street. Large green signs are located at the top of the driveway, directing you down to the entrance of the Clothing Bank Etc. and upper and lower parking areas.
A message from Christine, Clothing Bank Etc. Director:
(1 Peter 4:8, NIV)
"So often, people try to make others fit into their own mold, conform to their ideas, and be just like them. We think, “If they would just change, then I wouldn’t get upset. If they would just do it the way I want, then they wouldn’t get on my nerves.” But really, we need to give people room to be who God created them to be. Life is too short to spend it trying to fix everybody. Sure, we should encourage people and help them grow and come up higher. But we have to get to the point where we step back and say, “All right, this is who God made them to be, and I’m going to accept them the way they are. Just because they don’t have my same strengths, I’m not going to let that frustrate me.” We have to choose love every day because love covers over our differences and offenses. Love is what allows us to appreciate what others bring into our lives, and it brings us together in unity. Today, above all, choose love. Choose to focus on the things that make your relationships stronger because in the end, love is all that remains."
