HANGERS PLEASE!The Social Action Committee of Union Temple plans to sponsor a clothing drive this coming Spring 2012, the proceeds of which will be donated to Project Hope, an organization dedicated to helping disadvantaged adults re-enter the work force.
As in the past, we are asking for donations of “gently worn” clothing for men and women that is appropriate for the workplace, such as: suits, jackets, blazers, “smart casual” skirts and slacks, shirts, coats and shoes.
We have always had a wonderful response by our Temple members and the local community and hope to continue with this worthwhile project; however, we need to ask for your help in
changing the method of collection.
ALL CLOTHING YOU PLAN TO DONATE NEEDS TO BE PLACED ON HANGERS
PRIOR TO COLLECTION SO THAT IT CAN BE HUNG IN THE TEMPLE CLOSET
UPON ARRIVAL. Although many of our contributors have done this already, many have not, requiring that volunteers sort through heavy bags and hang the garments one by one—a difficult and time consuming process.
So, please, save that suit! Hold on to that dress! It will become a most welcome contribution to the Project Hope clothing drive. And if you no longer have room in your home and wish to
make a contribution of workplace clothing prior to this Spring, please bring it to Union Temple
on a hanger and we’ll hang it in our closet!
