The event will run from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Word of Life church, 13569 76 Ave. – in Surrey’s Newton neighbourhood, across the street from Canadian Tire.

Entry fee is $2/person. To learn more, go to clothes2u.ca

According to its website, “Clothes2U was an offshoot from a single parents group started by Ernie Jantzen in the 1990s. Some clothes were available for the single parents to take at the meetings but it slowly developed a life of it’s own. The first clothing giveaway was held in the parking lot of Nicomekl Elementary School in Langley.”
