It's time for our annual "Flipping Favorites" clothing drive benefit for Rose Brooks Center. Here's the basics. Then scroll on down for more details. Oh, and make sure you plan to attend our "disco" grand finale party on May 11.
It's that time of year again. As the weather gets cooler, perhaps with some frost on the ground, we start pulling out sweaters and jackets and coats to keep us warm throughout the winter. At Rose Brooks Center, the women and children that arrive for shelter from domestic violence often come without coats and many times without any additional clothing besides what they are wearing.
Words can't hardly describe how excited we were with everyone's generosity at this year's Fabulous Flipping Favorites this past May. Over 100 of you donated clothing. Over 20 of our vendors sent new clothing. Enough clothing was purchased (often in arm-loads) to raise over $5,500 for Rose Brooks Center. The following day, over 1,000 garments were transported to Rosie's Closet at Rose Brooks Center for the women sheltering there from domestic violence. Our customers are all Rock Stars and we can't thank YOU enough!!
420 coats and sweaters on hangars and neatly folded in boxes. All delivered to Rose Brooks Center. All due to the generosity of our customers. You are amazing. You donated. You shopped. You partied. Because of you, women and children at Rose Brooks Center will be wrapped in warmth. Thank you!!
Our 6th annual coat and sweater drive for Rose Brooks Center gets underway Monday, October 12th. Our temperatures have stayed warm enough that many of us haven't pulled out sweaters and coats yet. However, now is a great time to dig in your closets to find coats and sweaters that you are ready to share.
