COVINGTON, Va. (WFXR) — The Total Action for Progress (TAP) office in Covington is hosting a hybrid event over the course of three weeks to celebrate the grand opening of its new clothing closet to dress families in need for free.
According to the Facebook event description, the kickoff event — which is scheduled to take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, through Monday, Dec. 21 — will be part virtual and part in-person by appointment. Organizers say they will post photos of some of the available items and encourage people to ask questions during the event or via private message.
“Help us kick off the grand opening of our new clothing closet in Covington! This exciting new resource will provide free clothing to men, women, and children in need,” the Facebook event description states.
In-person appointment hours for the closet — which will remain open throughout the year — will be from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays. However, due to the pandemic, only one visitor will be allowed per appointment and masks will be required when you enter the TAP office.
If you want to an appointment or learn more about the clothing closet, call Sarah Burnette at (540) 460-8811 or Angie Campbell at (540) 969-9688.
For those still interested in contributing to this clothing closet, organizers say they still need children’s clothes in all sizes.
“We are incredibly grateful to Balchem Corp for assisting with the renovation of the closet, as well as to the numerous community partners and volunteers who have been an integral part of making this happen,” says the Facebook event description.
