Ready to join the purge?
No, we don’t mean those Purge movies. Or the TV series. Or even that purge-themed Rick and Morty episode. Instead, the kind of purge we’re talking about will make you feel good—without a single murder.
Oak Lawn United Methodist Church hosts a Drive ‘n’ Drop donation event this Saturday, so you have some time to clean out your closet and pantry to help people in need. Chances are, at some point during your time sheltering in place you’ve already gone through a few drawers, cabinets and closets and already have bags of stuff just waiting to be donated. If not, it only takes a few minutes to gather items (see full list of needs below).
The socially distanced event will be quick and easy. All you need to do is place your donation boxes or bags in the back seat or trunk of your car so that a volunteer can grab them quickly without ever making contact with you. Drive by between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. from the Welborn Street entrance.
Food items should not be expired and clothing should be gently used, washed and free of holes or tears. And if you can’t make the drive-by event, you can always purchase items directly from the church’s Amazon wish list. It’s a great way to spend a few minutes of your time this weekend while making a huge difference in someone’s life.
Plus, it’s still nice to have any excuse to get out of the house.
