This clothes closet first opened in October 2019 to provide quality FREE clothing and household accessories to the underserved in our city. The Prep Room, located in the Warehouse alongside the Worship space, is so much more than a closet!
Pat Brown is a Mosaic Deacon who has served in the Prep Room since its inception. She recently assumed leadership of this ministry to meet the immediate needs of men and women, while also encouraging them, praying for them, and helping them take the next step toward a healthy life. Mary Ingram, Almeta Rowell, and Georgia Morris are key volunteers who lead these efforts week in and week out.
Weekly, Hangers Cleaners delivers freshly cleaned coats for those in need. On Mondays, volunteers sort the coats, clothing, and other personal items that help people stay warm and dry through challenging weather conditions. By Tuesday, personalized boxes are ready for those who have requested them.
You’re probably asking, “What can I do?” The Prep Room needs immediate donations of cold weather clothing. Blankets, new undergarments, shoes, scarves, hats, and gloves top the list. Drop items off at the Prep Room on Sunday mornings or at the Mosaic office Monday through Thursday.
Pat has the gift of mercy. She is a devout believer in prayer and God’s Word. She says, “Whatever God starts, He completes!”
