A Caring Corner Ministry

Have you ever needed clothes, bedding, and a few toys for your children? I did once, when my house was flooded by 7  feet of water for 3 days. My children were 3 and 5, and almost everything we owned was destroyed in the flood. Or maybe you just needed a winter coat to keep out the chill of the brisk wind. A clothes closet ministry can be a real blessing during tough times! Many individuals in small towns do not have access to all of the social services that are available in bigger towns.

However, the churches and their understanding congregations step forward to offer help to those who are hurting. On a corner in Nowata is a unassuming building that has a sign in the window that reads, “The Caring Corner”. This ministry is sponsored by the Living Word Church. The staff at the Caring Corner is 100% volunteer. These thoughtful individuals give many hours of their time to make this ministry happen. This service offers clothing, shoes, household items, toys, etc. on a once a month schedule, free of charge. There is a sign in sheet for name, address, phone number and any special requests one might have. The organizers pour much of their personal time and energy into this program. While they are sifting through the clothes and come upon any of the special needs requests, those items are set aside.  If there is an emergency need, one can call the Living Word Church.

Clothing donations are closed currently, due to the abundance of caring folk that have given. Please note that donations cannot be dropped off at the door. Since the staff is 100% volunteer, there are no set hours, therefore, the boxes and sacks can get ruined in the weather. If you have something other than clothes to offer, please call the Living Word Church.

Ministries like The Caring Corner can always use monetary donations. I am positive that the money will be put to good use and goes 100% to the ministry. There is a If You Wish donation box at the site.
