EL MIRAGE, Ariz. (AP) - A Phoenix-area charity that provides clothes to needy families is trying to recover from weather-related damage.

A lot of the clothes stored by the Clothing Closet in El Mirage were damaged along with the charity's office when pipes burst after being frozen.

Television station KSAZ reports that the charity must empty its building so repairs can be made.

The charity has to go through the wet clothes to see what can be saved.
