Let’s have a Closet Party!
When is the last time you took a hard look at your closet? I know I have a habit of grabbing things because they’re on sale or they look good in theory but not so much in practice. I have bags upon bags, earrings, scarves, belts and a host of other accessories that I don’t wear anymore. This makes for a pretty unruly closet. One way to clear our your wardrobe and make a difference is to host a Closet Party! Recently, the ladies and I got together with all our clothing and accessories that we never wear. You wouldn’t believe how many items still had the tags on them!
After a few hours of swapping, laughs and music we were left with a mountain of wonderful clothes that no longer had a home. Once we were sure we were ready to part with these items, we took them over to our Eastern Avenue Supportive Housing Program and hosted a Closet Party with some of the ladies there! Each resident went into their closets as well and found a wealth of treasures to share with their neighbors. Add in a few more laughs and some good food and not only did we make a difference, but we had a great time doing it!
Hosting a Closet Party is an easy way to have fun and engage your friends in making a difference. Next time you’re looking for an outfit to wear to work take note of things in your closet that you’ve never worn, that sweater you got as a Christmas gift may not be your style but you never know who it might look fabulous on! If you’re interested in hosting a closet party email Communications Specialist Danielle Milner (firstname.lastname@example.org) for tips on how to get started!
