Clothing Donations

Just as we did for last year’s Zumbi celebration, Gingarte will be giving back to the community.  This year we’ll be holding a clothing drive for human trafficking victims. Bring clothing that is used but still in good condition with you to the event to donate to the Salvation Army.
