Along with our programs for youth and adults, Friendly House also provides community outreach programs during the year.
- The annual Clothing Giveaway is held in September. Anyone from the community is welcomed to come during the giveway for free, gently used clothing. There are clothes of all sizes for all genders. If community members are unable to attend the giveaway, they are invited to come to Friendly House between the hours of 10am-3pm, to have access to the clothing room. Clothing for the giveaway comes from community donations.
- In November, we hold the Friendly House Coats for Kids drive. This event is held on a Saturday and families in need of coats can attend during their scheduled time. There is no pre-registration for this event, but all family members in need of coats must be present and valid photo ID’s must be presented for all adults. Thanks to a grant from the Richland County Foundation and funds from the Mansfield Kiwanis Club, we are able to purchase new coats. The New Store and its volunteers are kind enough to do the shopping for the coats.
