Catholic Charities, 409 N. Adams in Sallisaw, has received some new racks to enhance the agency’s clothing room.
Pam Wemhaner said Thursday that Tulsa’s Catholic Charities center decided to close its clothing room to focus more on food delivery. The Tulsa agency gave the Sallisaw center its clothing racks for their use here.
“We have beautifully arranged the racks in the clothing room,” Wemhaner said. “It looks like a department store.”
Unfortunately, Wemhaner said that because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Sallisaw clothing room will not open in July as originally planned. “We hope to open the doors in August, but if someone wants to request a specific clothing item,” such as scrubs or jeans, folks can come to Catholic Charities’ back door and see if those items are available.
“Right now we are in the process of reorganizing” the clothing room, Wemhaner said, adding that because the agency’s volunteers are in the high-risk category for contracting COVID-19, it just wasn’t feasible to open the doors to the clothing room at this time.
