Bedford Interfaith Clothing Drive is a Big Success

Last weekend, 20 people showed up at the First Church of Christ, Congregational to help sort through the “Mt. Everest of clothing bags” as part of the Bedford Interfaith community’s fall/winter clothing drive for new neighbors at the Bedford Plaza Hotel.  

Many people throughout Bedford donated outerwear, boots, hats and gloves, and other clothing to help the newly-arrived migrants get through something most of them have never experienced – a typical New England winter.

The final phase of the clothing drive will happen on Friday when the migrants can come to the church to choose clothing for themselves and their families and enjoy a Creole lunch. This takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the First Church’s upper fellowship hall.
