Spreading His Love: Surplus of clothes leads to productive ministry
David and Lauree Resto run His Love Help Center on South College Street in Smithville. They provide free clothes and more to those in need.
His Love owners Lauree and David Resto didn't start out with the notion to open a clothing ministry, they just wanted to get rid of some old clothes."In a way it started years ago with my niece at the flea market when we decided to get rid of all our old clothes there," Lauree Resto said. "The more we gave away, the more we got. If we gave a two-handle bag away here comes someone with a trash-bag...mind we want to get rid of the clothes.""Well when it got to the point where this church pulled up with a truck like a 20-foot trailer with all those hanging clothes we were like OK God, why do you want us to keep having these clothes…we don’t want clothes.
