Associated Charities Will
Make Thanksgiving Col-
lection of Clothing.
"Bundle days" have been arranged
by the Associated Charities for the
collection of clothing for the needy
of El Paso. Mrs. W. U Foxworth.
chairman, of this committee, Monday
called a meeting of the committee in
which the plans were completed and
dates seieciea for the collection af
.omias. The d. .es will be November
ts and 16. This Is the usual Thanks
giving collection taaen largely
iurough the school children. The
Than&Ksiviag collections have not
been held during the last past three
years because clothing was needed
by the Red Cross n war work. Mrs.
oxvkorth says that the high price
of clothing made it almost impossible
for the Associated charities to buy as
much clothing as is needed by the
poor. She told of a number of Mexi
can families being found every day
during cold weather with children
annost naked and the families freez
ing at night because they did not
have covers or blankets. She also
told of a great number of tubercular
men here for their health, dependent
largely on relatives and the amount
they receive leaves nothing with
which to buy clothing. She said that
a great amount of men's clothing of
all kinds was needed as well as
clothing for school children and wo
men. It is necessary too, she said,
that any old covers or blankets not
needed should be given to the As
sociated Charities in this Thanksgiv
ing collection.
The clothing will be collected from
the homes and taken to the school
grounds and from there it win be
taken to the store room at 495 800 th :
