Since then, he has helped to identify issues, provided space for the Community Clothing Closet, and worked on informing and involving local church leaders of the need.
With the help of the community, Rev. Dr. Howell hopes to continue connecting with the schools and school social workers to best meet the needs of children and families right here in our community. Rev. Dr. Howell is the pastor at Centenary United Methodist Church on Hampton Road in Clemmons.
The Community Clothes Closet opened on December 22, 2018, and will open the 4th Saturday of every month from 10 A.M. until noon to provide clothes to individuals and families in need.
"As the holiday season approaches, it is gratifying to have several churches in our area addressing significant concerns that are affecting students in our schools. The services and the resources that they will be providing through the interfaith alliance program are a terrific gift to our community."
