Endicott, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Central United Methodist Church is focusing on giving back this holiday season by providing clothes to families in need.

The church has had a clothing center for nearly 30 years. This season, they decided to extend the hours of the center to accommodate working families.

People can now shop for free clothes four days a week.

Community members are encouraged to drop by and drop off as many items as they can.

The donated goods are up for grabs for anyone in the Southern Tier who needs them.

"It's very humbling being able to help others and being able to serve the people that are coming in," Coordinator Kelly Crane said. "They're extremely grateful and it definitely helps your soul to be able to help others"

The church is located at 17 Nanticoke Ave in Endicott.

If you want to stop by the clothing center, or donate something of your own, here is the schedule:

Tuesdays: 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Wednesdays: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Thursdays: 4:30 p.m. - Shepard's Supper
Sundays: First Sunday of Every Month, 9 a.m. - 11 a.m.
