NEWTON, Kan. — Agape Resource Center in Newton held an event Saturday called Cans for Clothes.
Agape is a food pantry, and a clothes closet for those in need. But the non-profit was running out of money for food.
As a way to fix the problem, Agape offered people clothes if they brought food for the pantry.
Those who run the center are suprised to see what some are doing to help. "A family came with a whole truck load of food. But all they wanted was a dress for their daughter," says Agape Resource Center executive director, Ronald Robinson. "They are here to help us feed people."
The Agape Resource Center gives out food twice a week to those who need it.
