Changes to our Clothing Ministry

We wanted to let our congregants know that FPC Plano clothing ministry personnel have recently met with decision makers for POWS (Plano Overnight Warming Station) and Streetside Showers.  We decided to physically merge our two inventories together, since both programs are working with members of our community who are homeless, to take advantage of synergies going forward.

FPC Plano has also agreed to “manage” (gather/sort/pack) the clothing donations for POWS this "winter" season (roughly from late October through mid March).  This will help free up POWS volunteers to serve participants at the Salvation Army Center when the warming station is activated.  Last year 1,400 members of our community used POWS over 21 nights they were activated due to cold temperatures.

With these changes come new opportunities!  In the near future we will need additional volunteers from our congregation or friends of FPC Plano to help sort and pack donated clothing for POWS so they can supply clothing items to participants of the warming station when activated.  More details to follow. If you think you might be interested in this ministery please contact Ted or Nancy Mckown.


FPC Plano started a Shoe Drive on 9/19/2021 to supply POWS and Streetside Clothing ministries with much needed footwear.  Although the drive has officially ended, we will continue to accept donations.

If you can not go shopping monetary donations will be taken to purchase needed shoes.  Monetary donations can be given to Nancy or Ted McKown.


(Keep in mind as you shop roughly 80% of POWS and Streetside Clothing participants are MALE)

  • Men's tennis shoes sizes 8 through 15.
  • Men's work boots (with or without steel toes) sizes 8 through 15.
  • Lady's tennis shoes sizes 5 through 10.

New shoes or good used shoes will go a long way to helping others in our community.  There are many thrift stores in the Plano and surrounding areas that sell used shoes.  One suggestion is the Goodwill store at Springcreek and Alma in Plano.  They have a 25% off all items on Tuesdays for seniors and service women/men.  They have a good selection of used shoes at low prices.

Let's make a difference!
