Outfitting a youngster can be an expensive task for any parent, given how quickly youngsters outgrow their clothing.
But for people without a lot of money, it’s even more daunting.
A new organization in Newark called Common Threads hopes to meet that challenge.
Organizer Bethany Comella, who works at the Park Presbyterian Church, said people come into the building all the time seeking help with anything from paying their utilities to gas for their car.
“For most things in town, I know where to send people,” said Comella.
Except when it comes to clothing for kids.
“This hasn’t really been met in the immediate Newark community,” said Comella, who founded the group with fellow Park Presbyterian Church employee Sarah Humphrey.
It has now.
