How often have you cleaned out your closet, disliking the idea of giving your clothes to the thrift store knowing someone could benefit from them? That’s how the concept for Clothing Cascade started.
Last year, my younger sister passed away, leaving me bins and bins of her clothes – more than I could ever wear in a year (she loved to shop)! As I recently was going through her clothes, some even had tags on them, I thought about how much I would love to give them to someone in the community rather than the thrift store. I also received clothes from others in the church who no longer were wearing them, and our daughter was growing out of her clothes. So I thought about taking all these items I had been given and turning our church into a “storefront” so members of our community could take what they needed, and we would call it Clothing Cascade. I ran the idea by Pastor Richard, and he loved it, and so it begins!
For those that would like to contribute, we will be collecting used clothing for men, women, and children at Central Valley Baptist from August 15th-18th. Friday, August 19th-Saturday, August 20th, we will transform the church into a “shopping” center; only everything will be free!
8/15-8/18/2022 – Drop off donations to Central Valley Baptist – 130 Cabarton Rd.
8/19-8/20/2022 – Community Selection Day – select the items you want/need
Needs by August 15th:
- Volunteers to help set up, man tables, and keep clothes in order
- Dressing/Clothing racks
- And Clothes!
- Snow gear
- Accessory items
Please, no used underwear, but we will take new if you want to donate.
We hope to get the word out to the community by word-of-mouth, church bulletins, and community fliers. Please help spread the word, and we look forward to the first, and hopefully many, annual Clothing Cascade event.
