King’s Academy donates to Kid’s Closet in Darlington
The first graders at The King’s Academy in Florence visited the Kid’s Closet on the Public Square in Darlington on Friday, January 30. Each grade at The King’s Academy has a classroom ministry project. The first graders chose to donate clothes to the Kid’s Closet for their ministry this school year, and donated hundreds of items including shirts, pants, jackets, dresses, sweaters and shoes.
“This was a meaningful experience for the first graders at The KIng’s Academy. It opened their hearts to the needs of others, and showed them how God can use them to provide for those in need.” said Mandy Bass and Danielle Rutt, The King’s Academy First Grade teachers.
The Kid’s Closet is a non-profit organization that provides students in kindergarten through twelfth grade with suitable clothing, coats, shoes, underwear and sleepwear, in an effort to enhance the lives of children in Darlington County. Children in need of clothing should contact their school guidance counselor. Donations of new or gently worn clothing are appreciated.
