By 8:00 on Thursday evening, May 9, we were exhausted but celebrating and smiling broadly. We had just finished our 14th annual Fabulous Flipping Favorites clothing buying party and raised over $6,300 in 3 hours for our “sisters” starting a new life away from domestic violence. The following day we also sent over 1,000 clothing items on rolling racks plus many boxes of carefully folded clothes to Rose Brooks Center.
So what’s happening? Our 14th annual “Flipping Favorites” clothing benefit to combat domestic violence – a benefit for Rose Brooks Center
And what do we need? Donations of clean, gently used and new women’s clothing
When? Starts Friday, April 12 when we start accepting clothing donations at World’s Window.
Ends Thursday, May 9 with a grand finale “Fabulous Flipping Favorites” shopping party – and it’s a great party with $10 shopping bargains, drawings, 20% off savings, festive foods and drinks
Take A Stand against domestic violence by sharing warmth with women and children in shelter at Rose Brooks Center
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. For many, home is a place of love, warmth and comfort. But for millions of women and children, home is any but that. Every 9 seconds, a woman in the U.S. is beaten or assaulted by a current or ex-significant other.
