Woodbury hosting clothes give away this week


Woodbury Elementary School is hosting a clothes give away from July 30 to August 3 in the school gym. Open to everyone, the clothes and items are all free of charge.
Times include 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. from Monday through Thursday and 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday and from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday.
As of now, the effort has enough donations to give out, but those willing to volunteer can call the Woodbury office at 641-754-1080.
The original give away was held on Sunday, July 29, before it was decided to extend it a week.
“The clothes and shoes give away went beyond all of of our hopes and dreams,” said Becky Jacobson, a Woodbury teacher and one of the event organizers. “Woodbury families and neighbors filled their bags with smiles on their faces.”
The Woodbury neighborhood was one of the areas affected by the July 19 tornado. This give away is open to everyone, not just tornado victims. Woodbury is located at 8 North 7th Ave.
