Thursday, April 28, 2011Thursday in ogden utah: hugo, abba and giving back! at 11:49 AM
Last night i hosted a swap party with some of my friends and it was so much fun we decided to make it a regular event so keep an eye out for future invites! Swap parties are a fun way to get new clothes, meet new people and give to a local charity. You have friends around you can ask for advice when you try on new clothes and of course a little dance party might break out. Last night we piled our clothes up and picked out some new outfits for ourselves (even the little ones got new duds) and the rest we donated to the YCC of Ogden and their thrift store. It felt good to clean out my closet and get rid of some things that were beautiful but just not getting any love and get some new outfits in return. But Even more, it felt good to give back to the community.
According to their website-"YCC of Ogden is a non-profit community based organization that assists victims of domestic violence, rape, and economic hardship. The YCC provides shelter, food and clothing assistance, and rape recovery services at no cost.The YCC thrift store is 100% community donation based and redistributes the majority of its inventory back to the community. Through the thrift store individuals are provided with clothing at no cost. Household items are used to furnish our transitional housing apartments and shelter." If you are interested in donating checkout their wishlist of things they are in need of. You can also donate monetarily or donate your time by volunteering.
If you have a venue/business and would like to host or sponsor the next community clothing swap contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
