My Neighbors Closet Embarks on 30 Years Serving The Community

My Neighbor’s Closet is celebrating its 30th year serving the Plattsmouth community.  The store was the brainchild of the late Rev. Fr. York, a former Church of the Holy Spirit pastor, and became a reality on November 6, 1989 when it opened its doors to the community. Thank you to all those from our Parish who given their time to this cause over the years.
