How You can Help!
Being a non-profit, Outfitters relies on fundraisers and donations to operate. They are always in need and here’s a few ways you can help with their noble mission.
- Donating new and gently used, quality, in-style clothing is a wonderful way you can help. 75% of their clothing is donated through individuals in the community.
- They do not accept clothes with stains or that show excessive wear. Nor do they accept used socks or under garments.
- Outfitters is always in need of your time, enthusiasm and talents! Volunteers help sort, wash, dry, fold and hang clothes for the boutique. Without volunteers, they would not be able to meet the needs for the kids!
- Through donations of money and sponsorships of their fundraising events, Outfitters is able to continue clothing the kids. Events include:
- Block Party
- PHHS Boys and Girls Basketball Games
- Time for a Change
