A NEW SEASON FOR THE CLOTHING CLOSET - Dawn Beedle was the visionary who created the clothing program. Recognizing an unmet need in our community, she created Dawn’s Closet, and in 2005, partnered with Valley Outreach. Originally offering career wear to women, the program expanded to offer clothing for the entire family. Dawn passed away in 2007, yet her energy and her legacy carries on through the strength of the current program. The Clothing Closet is continually evolving, looking for new ways to meet client needs. fill (y)our closet, a pop-up sale with a purpose, allows us to generate revenue, 100% of which goes directly back into the Clothing Closet to purchase items not typically donated.
Watch here for the save the date for our 4th annual Undie Sunday event! Valley Outreach, along with area churches, will collect donations of new, in-the-package socks and underwear. Our faith partners kick off with Undie Sunday, which then leds into the broader community Undie Week.
The Valley Outreach Clothing Closet offers gently used clothing for children and adults, relying almost exclusively on donations from area residents. What is not gently used, however, are the socks and underwear distributed to those in need.
What the heck is Undie Sunday?
