Women’s Clothing GiveAway
January 27 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$20
Annual Women’s Clothing Exchange
The Women’s Clothing Exchange at Germantown Jewish Centre is an annual community and charitable event that serves many functions. This year it will be held from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.
Every year, women in the community are asked to donate any clothing and accessories that are in good condition, but which they no longer use. These donations are collected at GJC during the week before the event (Jan. 21-25).
The event is set up like a giant bazaar; women from all over the city come and pay $20 to “shop” for shoes, sweater, coats, jeans, dresses, skirts, blouses, jewelry, accessories, pajamas, lingerie, bathing suits, exercise gear, vests, shorts and other women’s clothing.
It is a festive atmosphere with music, friends and a private place for trying on clothes.
This year the proceeds will be used by GJC to support its work with POWER, an interfaith organization committed to implementing systemic change for the betterment of Pennsylvania communities (powerinterfaith.org).
When the event is over, all leftover items are donated to Whosoever Gospel Mission in Germantown. This program supports people who have been homeless and struggled with addictions in getting the help they need to get clean, sober and vocational training.
