The Giving Center



East Broadway Elementary School Cafeteria

1755 E. Broadway, Toledo, OH

The Giving Center (our free clothing store ministry that offers good, quality clothing free of charge) is designed to serve everybody. We believe anyone who is in need of help, a little or a lot, regardless of the reason, can come and share in this opportunity. For more information, contact Pastor Tom at or 419.838.7600 x131.


All donations of clothing and shoes can go in the collection bins located in the parking lot. Just a friendly reminder to place all your donations in bags prior to dropping in the bins. This keeps the clothing dry and makes it easier for unloading.

We would like to thank you for your prayers and your support through budget transfers of $1200 for 2021, 2022 & 2023.  Follow this link to read more about what we were able to accomplish this year.
