A local church in McCook offers free clothing and household items to the surrounding community during a monthly giveaway. A group of participants from the Work Ethic Camp (WEC), volunteered their time and labor to set up for the giveaway. It takes over 25 tables, 10 clothing racks, and over 50 totes of items to set up this project monthly. Without the help of the WEC participants, this project would take days to set up but, with their help it only takes a matter of hours. The church members are grateful for the assistance!Read more
