Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is Conducting Children's Clothing Drive

Throughout the month of October, Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Chatham is conducting a children’s clothing drive.

The drive is being held to benefit the Center of United Methodist Aid (CUMAC), a nonprofit group in Paterson that works to alleviate hunger and its root causes for those in need in Paterson, Passaic County and northern New Jersey.

The clothing drive is a yearly initiative for Gloria Dei, which collected two truckloads of donations in 2009.
