ABOUT CLOTHING INC 

Clothing INC began when employees  from Eydent Insurance wanted to adopt families during Christmas. Soon after there was a realization that the need was bigger than just a few families in our community. Clothing INC was created soon after in the basement of The First Church of the Nazarene,

in the efforts to help clothe people in need.

In October 2017, Clothing INC joined a collaborative effort in Isabella County to reduce poverty by partnering with United Way, Mount Pleasant Area Community Foundation, Care Store, Isabella County Restoration House, and Community Compassion Network Food Pantry,  located within the Strickler Center Building.
