SOUTHERN INDIANA

Deadline for ‘Giants’ extended

Members of the community now have until noon on Monday, July 29, to make reservations for Hope Southern Indiana’s seventh annual “Giants in the Faith” celebration from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Aug. 4 at Huber Winery’s Plantation Hall in Starlight.

To download a reservation form with details, log onto hopesi.org or stop by Hope at the Brown-Starks Neighborhood Place at 1200 Bono Road, New Albany. Completed forms can be mailed, delivered, or dropped in the mail slot there.

The event will honor 25 individuals and couples from 12 different churches who have been submitted by the public for having had an impact on their Christian faith. Call 812-206-1800 with questions.

Get school clothes from Salvation Army

The Salvation Army will host a clothing giveaway to residents of Clark, Floyd, Scott and Washington counties from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. July 24 at The Salvation Army Thrift Store, 528 Little League Blvd., Clarksville.

Residents in Crawford and Harrison counties can go to the Corydon Thrift Store, 101 W. Hwy. 62, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. July 17.

The giveaway, now in its 23rd year, is sponsored by The Salvation Army in an effort to overcome the high cost of sending children back to school.

Any child or adult residing in Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties, who is enrolled in school — including college — is eligible to participate and receive eight articles of clothing without cost. Participants only need to bring verification of school enrollment, or birth certificate, and proof of address.

Last year, 1,176 students were helped with clothing and more than 400 received school supplies.
