|After my son outgrew his once-worn first communion outfit, I took it to a second-hand store in town.
They offered me $9.00 for the complete package of jacket, shirt, tie, pants, belt, and shoes.
So after saying “Are you kidding me?” I then said “Forget it…I would rather give it away!”
Valerie Cookro Blanton recently started a collection of first communion clothes at our church. Because many kids will not wear these outfits again, parish families can borrow an outfit to help their child feel special on their big day.
If you have boy’s suits and/or girl’s white dresses/veils that you can share for the “First Communion Closet” at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church Harrisonburg Va, please contact Valerie at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange your donation.
