New digs, new name, and big plans coming for the Union “Klothes Kloset”
For years, Union’s PTA provided the guiding hand and dedicated volunteers for Union’s
“Klothes Kloset,” a pleasant place for Union families to find free, gently used clothing. Now, thanks to one of Union’s newest school partners, First Baptist Church Tulsa, the operation is expanding and will be housed in the church’s CenterCross location just west of the Union Sixth/Seventh Grade Center.
The new name is the “Clothing Closet,” and initial hours will be 9-11 a.m. on school days, beginning the first day of school, August 20. The plan is to add evening and Saturday hours in the near future. In addition to racks and shelves of quality, gently worn items, First Baptist Church Tulsa will also provide brand new shoes and clothing at the CenterCross location.
“We have had 25 years of experience in providing a well-organized clothing operation at our Caring Center downtown,” explains First Baptist Church Tulsa Youth Minister Eric Costanzo. “We will make sure the items available to Union families we serve at CenterCross are all very nice.”
“First Baptist Church Tulsa is a partner whose heart is with service to families,” said Union Director of Student Life Denise Vaniadis. “And now they are providing the Clothing Closet in the heart of the Union community.”
The CenterCross building is on S. 99th E. Avenue, the first street west of the Sixth/Seventh Grade Center.
“While the PTA will no longer be in charge of the operation, some of its members have already asked when they can volunteer,” Vaniadis added.
