3rd Annual Something New For Easter Prague Clothing Drive

Are you looking for a place to donate used clothes in Prague? Throughout April, the English-speaking Community's children's Religious Education Program is asking for new and used clothes which will be given directly to the St. Tomas clothing charity. The name of the drive - Something New For Easter – is in honor of the tradition in many places of wearing new clothes at Easter, or in this case, giving someone clothes that are new to them and may help them through an important event such as a job interview or transition to a safe house, or keep them warm during cold weather.
