Free Clothing, Food

With school starting many families are facing a real crunch. At Hope for Healing.Org, we'd like to help.

If you are in the Strawberry Plains zip code, or if you attend a school we serve, you may come by our shop and pick up some clothing for school during our normal school hours on Thursday and Friday. It's based out of stock on hand. Sizes cannot be guaranteed.

To qualify, all we need is a referral. This can be a note from your pastor, shelter, advocate, a teacher, case manager, social worker etc. It doesn't have to be on letterhead but does need to have a verifying phone number. The note needs to say that you meet the above guidelines and that you need clothes.

Schools served include:
Carter Elementary
Carter Middle
Carter High
Rush Strong School

We also maintain a small food pantry. Food boxes are available during the clothing and shop hours.

For questions please call 865.933.8769 or email

Donations of clothing and food are accepted during the operating hours of 11:00-3:00 Tues - Sat.Please bring them to the thrift shop. We'll be glad to help you unload. A tax receipt can be provided.
