Winter Jackets Needed
With the cold weather now upon us, Matthew 25 Bazaar needs additional warm winter jackets, especially for men and children. Shorter jackets are more suitable for the needs of the customers. There is also a need for men's winter clothing. Thank you for your donations and support!
