SOCIAL PURPOSE CALENDAR
California Closets: Collecting Donations for Pace Center for Girls in Southwest Florida
May 1 - August 31
Through the end of August, California Closets of Southwest Florida will be hosting its 4th annual clothing drive in support of Pace Center for Girls.
Donated clothing, shoes, handbags, and jewelry will be delivered to Pace’s upcoming annual Love That Dress event during which community members can purchase tickets to “shop” the collected items. All proceeds support Pace’s ongoing mission to aid women ages 11-18 who are struggling with poverty, substance abuse, domestic violence, foster home placement, neglect, grief, incarceration of a family member and physical, emotional, or sexual abuse.
In exchange for a clothing donation, California Closets’ local clients can receive up to 15% off their next project.
California Closets of Southwest Florida is the largest single contributor to the clothing drive and owner Suzi Woods sits on the board.
DO YOU HAVE CLOTHING TO DONATE? If so, please send donations to Pace Center for Girls, 3800 Evans Ave, Fort Myers, FL 33901.
You can also join the donation drive virtually: Use the hashtag #makespaceforpace and post a video of yourself “making space for Pace” as you clean out your own closets. Challenge your friends to do the same.
