Clothes closet open this week

The Community Clothes Closet, which provides gently used, school appropriate clothing to benefit Mount Vernon ISD students, will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, August 3 and from 8 a.m. to noon. on Saturday, August 4.

Any school age child is welcome to come “shop” for clothing in the County Seat building at 102 N. Houston St. on the east side of the downtown square. Items not taken by families will be shared with the MVISD’s nurses office, the CIS counselors, and the First United Methodist Church’s Christmas clothing drive.
