Prison Ministry Clothing Closet

This ministry housed at First Church provides women being released from the Topeka Correctional Facility
with clothing and a purse to empower a fresh start.

Volunteers are needed once a month to select clothing from our clothing closet and package it for delivery to the prison.  This volunteer opportunity offers flexibility on timing–you can fill a clothing order anytime the church is open. First time volunteers will be contacted by Aileen Ball to walk you through the process.
