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.
History comes to life at the library
Join Lori Roberts, living historian and author of “Lost Letters: A Civil War Love Story,” as she brings history to life at the New Albany-Floyd County Public Library on Thursday, July 25.
Roberts will give a first person account of married life during the Civil War. Copies of her book will be available for purchase following the program and refreshments will be served. The program begins at 7 p.m. in the library’s Strassweg Auditorium.
