Before a distribution event, we hold a day-long event to inspect and sort collected clothing and other items to ensure that each meets the standards set by the organization for condition and quality. Clothing is sorted by size and category, packed into bins and stored at a rented facility until the distribution event.
We set up the clothing giveaway venue to resemble a high-end clothing boutique. Items are carefully hung and displayed by size and category on rounders and racks, or neatly folded and displayed on tables. Our goal is to create an inviting setting where prequalified young women can shop with pride. When the event opens, the “shoppers” sign in and receive two large handle bags that they can fill to the brim with items of their choosing. All items are free.
