ClothingWorks is once again supporting St Vincent De Paul with clothing donations and volunteers to help with their 2021 Winter street outreach to the homeless. Please see attached poster with details.
How can you help?
From the Blog
On November 27, 2020, Clothing Works joined the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Youth Conference of London for their On the Street event. Carol McIntyre and volunteer Jolyn Showalter of Clothing Works were able to attend, and bring with them 40 bags of clothing ranging from shoes to coats and other essential clothing items needed during the winter months.
The event was a huge success and we thank the Society of Saint Vincent De Paul for organizing & including Clothing Works in the event!
Thanks to the help of its generous partners, ClothingWorks is able to be a valuable resource in its community. One of these partners is Tyner-Shorten Clothiers, owned by Richard Melhado. Tyner-Shorten Clothiers is a high-end, London-based menswear store, which focuses on “everything between the hat and the shoes.”
Shirley Pierce is the volunteer team lead at ClothingWorks in London, Ontario. She’s a former teacher with a passion for volunteer work, and Shirley has been working with the ClothingWorks program for 5 years. She began by donating to the program, and eventually inquired about becoming a volunteer when ClothingWorks moved to Goodwill.
During the month of October, Tyner-Shorten Clothiers will be offering an “Old is New Again” promotion. They will ask their customers to bring in a cleaned, gently used suit and will provide a discount on a new suit. Tyner-Shorten Clothiers has been running this promotion annually for over 10 years with the goal to provide quality menswear to job seekers in our community.
Join us at the ClothingWorks Sale on Saturday, June 1 at the Goodwill Centre (main lobby) in London! New and gently worn men’s and ladies casual, formal, vintage & designer, accessories + all season will be available. Speciality items are also available for purchase. Help support our program! The ClothingWorks Sale is open to the public, so stop by and grab some amazing finds!
Many thanks to Pure-Health Wellness Centre for organizing a ClothingWorks donation drive! You’ve touched the hearts of so many job seekers… and boosted their chances to land the job of their dreams. Thank you!!!
