She will accept additional donations beginning Wednesday, she said.Poteau Main Street Matters is providing tables for the event.A similar giveaway in April "was an amazing blessing," Seaman said."We had people say they found clothes to job hunt and wear to church," she said."We started out with nine tables full and had only one little bag left. It's a great way to recycle good, useable things," she said.Refreshments also will be available.For more information or to donate items, call the store at (918) 208-7685.
