If you’d like some free back to school clothes for your kids, the Salvation Army is the place to be this Friday. Thousands of articles of clothing will be available from 8:30 a.m. until noon at the Putnam Avenue location. This annual event helps kids get ready for school. Organizers said the annual event draws a large crowd, so they advise getting there early. Salvation Army workers began organizing the clothes months ago. Anyone can donate items at any time for the event.
