Alethea Smerdon speaks on COVID-19’s effect on God’s Closet and the community

God’s Closet broke a record this week – one we have mixed emotions about. A record 800 families were helped with food during the month of March, almost double the normal amount, representing families from all across Camp county. We are honored to be able to serve them with bags and boxes of food staples, fresh fruit, and vegetables in the produce distribution. In the wake of COVID-19, many families will need to rely on local pantries and we will be here for you during this pandemic.


Living the tiny life

Tiny living is not for the faint of heart. My husband and I downsized in February from a huge two-bedroom apartment to a home with 140 square feet. When we decided to go the tiny route, we knew we would have to get rid of a ton of stuff. We sat down together and made a list of things we had to have - then we cut that in half. Furniture, decor, and other large items had to go. Half of our clothing also had to go. We kept only what we knew we would need.
