Our Warm Weather Clothing Drive Starts Now!

Our Warm Weather Clothing Drive Starts Now!

We cannot thank you enough for all the hard work that has gone into our winter clothing drive! A few months ago, we barely had enough clothing to cover our tables. Now, we don’t have enough bins to contain all our clothing! Because of donations from hundreds of people all over Philadelphia, we are able to provide a wider array of clothing and toiletry options for our guests every Saturday morning. Thank you! Now, and it may seem weird as the last of the blizzard snow melts away this week, its time to start collecting summer clothing. Maybe you’re a great fashion planner and you’ve already cleaned out your wardrobe and have your new summer outfits picked out. More likely you’re like me and you put all your warm weather clothing in the back of the closet in December and will pull it out in March. Either way, I bet we all have some clothing that we know we won’t need as the weather gets warmer! So, before the weather gets warmer, let’s start collecting and bringing warm weather clothing to Old First for our Clothing Cupboard. We want to avoid the situation we had this fall – a shortage of weather-appropriate clothing. Check your closets, ask your friends and co-workers, and stop by throughout the week or on Saturday or Sunday morning. Let’s make sure that our guests at Old First’s Clothing Cupboard continue to have the choices they need for the future months. Thank you!
