Clothing Shed Reopens

St. Mary’s Church had closed drop-off due to pandemic

The clothing shed at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church in Cold Spring, which closed due to concerns at the spread of COVID-19, is again accepting donations.

St. Pauly Textile, the company which provided the shed, partners with a network of businesses and organizations to distribute donated items in 44 countries, including the U.S. The church receives funding for donated clothing and has the option to use donations in the local community.

Along with clothing items, residents can donate  shoes, belts, purses, blankets, sheets, curtains, pillowcases and stuffed animals.
