In the past few weeks, we have seen generous donations from a number of organizations. Unison Credit Union, UW-Oshkosh SHRM Student Chapter, Wisconsin Timber Rattlers, Discovery Clothing, and Fleet Feet Sports of Fox Valley have done drives and donated clothing, shoes, books, and many other items for our clients.
A big thank you goes to those organizations for doing the drives and to those that donated. Your support is very much appreciated.
On April 14th, girls were given the chance to pair up with a "Fairy Godparent" and take a walk through the Cinderella Boutique. They picked out a dress, shoes, and other accesories in preparation for the prom. Thank you to Phi Theta Kappa from Fox Valley Technical College for helping ready the boutique and acting as Fairy Godparents. See the story about how the Community Clothes Closet is helping every girl have a chance to dance.
And, yes, the famous pink dress did find a home.
The Spring Bling Fundraiser was held on April 11th, and it was a great success. Thank you to all that donated jewelry and those that volunteered to help with the sale. And thank you to all those that bought jewelry. Everyone involved helped clothe our community.
