The Free Market at our Lewisville Campus will provide new and gently used clothes for the community, and we need you to make this happen!
Donations of clothing will be collected throughout the month of November to supply the upcoming free market. It is our goal to provide as many clothes as possible to create a great market experience for those in need.
Clothes accepted for donation:
Socks (New Only)
Please keep in mind, we are accepting only donations that are gently used and in wearable condition. We will not accept items that are not in good condition. You are welcome to donate new items.

During this season of gratitude, we are reminded of the importance of Paying It Forward.
Paying it forward requires us to take the focus off of our lives, our problems, and our self-interest. Look for opportunities to do good. To give a helping hand. To contribute to worthy causes. To offer assistance to someone in need. The Bible exhorts, “As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people…” (Gal. 6:10).
Paying it forward calls for us to genuinely care about other people. It is almost a proverb that “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” The Good Samaritan paid it forward because he cared and felt compassion for a hurting, helping man (Lk. 10:33-36). Paying it forward may not be that dramatic, but simply a kind, encouraging word. Author David Chiles suggested, “Pay it forward with free compliments. They are returned in due time.
Paying it forwards involves humility. A heart that truly wants to help doesn’t care who gets the credit. That’s why in so many “pay it forward” acts of kindness the donor is anonymous or at least doesn’t linger to receive any praise. Remember “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (James 4:6).
In her book, Harvest of Hope: Living Victoriously Through Adversity, Dana Arcuri challenges us with these words, “Today, I challenge you to pay it forward. You don’t need to save a village—only one lost soul. Be the reflection of Christ and shine His light. The cost is little, but the reward is rich.”
