JLS Community Collaborations – My Sister’s Closet Valentine’s Day Tea Party Wednesday, February 15, 2017

Members of The Junior League of Syracuse will be hosting a Valentine’s Day Tea Party for the women of My Sister’s Closet at the YWCA of Syracuse & Onondaga County on Wednesday, February 15.

The YWCA of Syracuse & Onondaga County is a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1885 as a member of the national YWCA, an autonomous women’s movement. The YWCA is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. The YWCA’s My Sister’s Closet is the clothing donation arm of the organization that helps those in the YWCA Residence Program. By donating to My Sister’s Closet, you can help women feel good about themselves and be better prepared for finding jobs in their “new” clothes. Although you can donate any type of clothing, only professional clothing is available in the “closet”. Non-professional clothing will be distributed to YWCA residents and clients or used for fundraising for YWCA programs. Appreciated items are:

  • professional (cleaned) women’s clothing, in sizes 12 and up.
  • scarves, jewelry
  • shoes
  • purses
  • pantyhose
  • new make-up
  • shopping bags with handles

Please donate clothing on hangers if possible or delivered in another container that does not need to be returned to the donor. Although My Sister’s Closet will accept clothing for any season, clothing for the current season is most appreciated. Following is a timetable when it is best to make your donations:

  • Winter—October, November, December, January
  • Spring—February, March
  • Summer—April, May, June, July
  • Fall—August, September

Please call LaVergne Harden Danzy at (315) 471-9480 to ensure your donations can be accepted.
