Hope 21 Boutique, a ministry offering free clothing and shoes to community members, is excited to announce their new location. The shop is now housed within Grace United Methodist Church at 100 Central Avenue in Oil City.

Lisa Swartz, who started Hope 21 in 2016, said, “We are loving the new space. It has been so popular we need to increase open hours. It is amazing being downtown and close to other businesses with easy parking.”

They will hold their annual “A Dress For You” event on March 8 & 9, where they will have formal attire, accessories, and more for those preparing for prom and wedding season.

Hope 21 is currently accepting donations for men, women, and children’s clothing and shoes. Follow their Facebook page to learn more at
