GFTH, with the help of hundreds of volunteers, was busy the weekend of December 2-4 for our annual Used Clothing Drive.  It was another great success:  we delivered 3187 bags of clothes and other essential items to 55 local shelters.  This was an 2.5 percent increase in donations from last year's drive.

This could not have been possible without the assistance of dozens of local organizations who participated.  More props to our amazing contributors to come!!
