I cannot believe that we are approaching the end of October; however, there is still much work to do in the community and for God's Kingdom.  Sisters Road To Freedom, Inc. will be conducting its final clothing giveaway for families in need on Saturday, November 14, 2015.  Fall and Winter Clothing, shoes and accessories will be available for the families. 

Please share this information with families you may know that can benefit from this community service. We do not have redtapes, families come in and get what they need.  

God bless
