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.

AARP, Floyd County Chapter, will meet at 1 p.m. July 12 at St. John’s Church, located at the corner of 13th and Elm streets, New Albany.
