Men's Closet Year-end Report
To all who helped at the Men’s Closet during 2016, thank you. It wouldn’t exist without you. Twenty people volunteered; many of them multiple times. The Men’s Closet is truly a “Club Project.” In 2016 we helped 749 men and were open 101 days. That is an average of 7.41 men per day. Those numbers compare very closely to 2015 when we helped 721 men in 100 days. Once again, thank you. Here’s hoping all of us have a great 2017. – Jim DeCoster
