Diakon Kathryn’s Kloset participated in the Baltimore mayor’s recent Back-to-School Rally. The event was held in early August at City Hall.

According to Wade Brown, executive director of Diakon Kathryn’s Kloset, located in Baltimore County, the warehouse ministry provided shoes and clothing for the Harvey Johnson Head Start Program, housed at Union Baptist Church, to provide to participants in the mayor’s annual effort to aid those in need.

The local Head Start program is a partner of Diakon Kathryn’s Kloset, which solicits and stores corporate donations of cleaning, personal care and other products, making them available to other nonprofit groups to provide to people in need—at no cost to the end-recipient.
