Donate clothes to the homeless in Corpus Christi

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – The cooler weather will linger on the coastal bend for a while. South Texas was long overdue for some lower temperatures.

The change in weather has led the shelters to ask the community to remember those who may not have warm clothes to help them get through the cold season.

“Today we served 100 people for breakfast and 100 people for lunch,” said Mother Teresa’s Sister Rency.

“We see more people coming to our closets and asking for clothes; asking for jackets, socks, gloves, hats,” said Tony Reyes, the founder and CEO of Mission 911.

Since COVID-19, more safeguards have been added to the donation process, such as: B. Ensuring that the donor has cleaned and called the items before items are dispensed.
