Today (March 14), a West Michigan clothing store is giving away free clothing to those in need.

WWMT-3 reports that Second Impressions, located at 3750 Westnedge Avenue in Kalamazoo, is having its annual clothing giveaway 4 to 6 p.m. EDT Saturday.

Last year, more than 600 people came to event and the store gave out more than 3,000 pieces of clothing.

The general manager PattyGruizinga appeared on  WMMT-3's The Lori Moore Show, to talk about the event and give some background on Second Impressions.

Twice a year, around when the seasons change, Second Impressions holds a clothing giveaway: all clothing, shoes, and boots are free those in need in the community.
