NEWS AND TRIBUNE BRIEFS — For July 23

SOUTHERN INDIANA

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. Wednesday, July 24, at The Salvation Army Thrift Store, 528 Little League Blvd., Clarksville.

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.
