Frieden’s Lutheran Church of Shartlesville recently held its annual clothing giveaway. Coordinator for this project was Marie Strause. She was assisted by many volunteers including the library. It was a cooperative community outreach between the church and the library that has been done for about seven years now. According to Strause, the event is held “to help the needy in the area, so nobody goes cold.” Leftover items will be donated to other outreach entities.
