The Ladies of Purpose are prepping for their fifth annual clothing and school supply giveaway for the residents of Cleveland Homes on Sept. 15 from 2 to 5 p.m.

The Ladies of Purpose was founded by Tandra Chandler in 2014.  The group’s purpose is to encourage members to live their lives in faith by doing good deeds.  On Sept. 15, they will be giving away clothing, gift cards and school supplies for the children, setting up shop in the field behind the Cleveland Homes office.

“When you turn on the TV set or listen to the radio, you often hear bad news, so we want to bring some good news to the community,” Chandler said in a statement.  “Our mission is seeking to put God’s love into action by supporting the community and the Samaritan Ministry Soup Kitchen.”

Chandler says they reach out to family, friends and church congregations throughout the year for donations to the giveaway.  The 12 members of Ladies of Purpose say they strive to be like Christ and press on toward the purpose for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.  She says most of the things that are purchased come out of their pockets.

Chandler says she enjoys seeing the same smiling faces year after year.  She says it warms her heart to hear the positive things she hears from the residents, young and old.

“We enjoy seeing the joy on the children’s faces as we help them seek through the clothing, trying to find their sizes,” she said. 

According to Chandler, the giveaway continues to grow each year.  She says with the help of her family, friends and the Lord, they will continue to bless the Cleveland Homes community more and more.
