Carmeletta Joseph, CEO and Founder of No More Drowning in Silence, is kicking off the Memorial Day weekend with a clothes drive. This is a community-wide event geared at helping the local women's shelter of Lake Charles. If you have gently used clothing that could benefit some young lady in the area, you are encouraged to bring them this Saturday.

The benefit will be on May 29 at Circle 7, 1221 North Martin Luther King Highway from 4:00pm 6:00pm. The event is free and there will also be special discounts for those who donate or contribute.

The No More Drowning in Silence Foundation is a nonprofit organization that believes in the protection of abused and battered women, and this is just another way to show support and help at the same time.
