Clothing pantry will
host open house

An open house to celebrate the
grand opening of Robin’s Closet,
a clothing pantry at Mount Zion
General Baptist Church, 3565 S.
Keystone Ave., will be held from
10 a.m.-noon Saturday.
Named after Robin Grove,
who envisioned the pantry before
dying of cancer March 21, the
pantry provides nice clothing to
the needy.
“We will be a good resource
for people who have been burned
out of their homes,” said Da-
rolina “Dara” DeBurger, who’s
spearheading the project. “We
still need boys clothing and new
underwear and socks for children
of all ages. And if someone needs
a nice outfit to wear to an inter-
view but can’t afford one, they
can call me at 317-625-6648 to
see if we have anything suitable.”
Deburger said she doesn’t
know what kind of business to
expect, so she hasn’t set up any
fixed hours. “People can just call
me for an appointment.”

“I don’t think it will fit,” laughs
Penny McGowan, who helped
sort clothes at the clothing drive
for Robin’s Closet.
