JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) The Dix Crisis Intervention Center in Jacksonville will host a clothing drive to collect clothes from the community to give to its clients who are in need.
The clothing drive will be held on Saturday, July 13, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Dix Center, located at 215 Memorial Drive.
The Dix Center says it needs donated clothing of all sizes, including shirts, pants, shorts, socks, and sports bras.
The donated clothes will be used in the Wellness Wardrobe, which provides clothing to people in need who are admitted as clients of the Dix Center.
“Knowing that you have clean dry clothes, knowing that you have a roof over your head, knowing that you have those basic necessities that we take for granted every single day is a key piece and allowing someone to focus on healing and recovery,” said Grace Dolfi, site director at Dix Crisis Center with RI International.
The facility is scheduled to open in a few weeks to patients to provide treatment for mental health and substance abuse.
