In its first 11 months of existence, Grandma's Closet donated over 200 items of clothing to Becker County children.

From infants to teenagers, this outreach ministry of First Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes offers an opportunity for children to bring home a special outfit for a prom, recital, church or school program, etc. -- even a job or college interview -- the kind of special outfit that their parents might otherwise have difficulty fitting into the family budget.
