Members of a Winamac church have cleaned their closets out and want to give back to the community. Fellowship Baptist Church is hosting a Spring Cleaning Clothing Giveaway on Saturday, April 27 from 8 a.m. until noon EDT. Organizers want items to go to people who are having a hard time making ends meet and need a helping hand. They’ve got a variety of men’s women’s and children’s clothing and accessories for all seasons. Any items not given away will be donated to charity. Fellowship Baptist Church is located at the corner of State Road 119 and 100 South just south of Winamac.

WKVI News Director Mary Perren is glad to be back home in northern Indiana and on the radio. She’s a North Judson native with more than 20 years of news experience. She’s worked in print and radio news in Indianapolis, Hopkinsville, Ky., Nashville, Tenn. and most recently in Winamac before taking over as news director for Kankakee Valley Broadcasting in February of 2013. Her work has been honored by the Associated Press, StateNets News Association, Curb Foundation, Hoosier State Press Association and IBA. When she’s not sitting in the anchor chair or chasing down news, Mary enjoys shopping for antiques, attending concerts and taking long walks and rides in her vintage Saab convertible, weather permitting. She’s also a hopelessly devoted Chicago Cubs fanatic who still cringes at the mention of Steve Garvey and Josh Beckett and maintains it wasn’t Steve Bartman’s fault.
