Local Bars Hold Clothing Drive For the Homeless

Posted By on Mon, Dec 23, 2013 at 3:39 PM


A handful of Memphis bars are teaming up this holiday season to collect clothing for the city's homeless population.

Between December 26th and January 8th, Local (95 S Main, 2126 Madison), Blind Bear (119 S. Main), and Newby's (539 S. Highland) will accept donations of gently used clothing. After the drive is complete, the items will be donated to the Manna House (a hospitality hub that offers clothing, coffee, and showers to the homeless) and Room at the Inn (an organization that pairs homeless people with participating churches for shelter).
