Clothing Drive to Benefit LA’s Homeless Women

October 30, 2014

Starting Saturday, November 1st,  bring in gently worn women’s clothing and accessory items to any of the West 3rd Street retailers below and get a discount on your purchase! West 3rd Street has teamed up with MADE by DWC to round-up beautiful, gently used women’s clothes for the women of the Downtown Women’s Center.

Ready to get involved? It’s pretty simple: clean out your closet and get ready to shop!  Bring your donated clothing to one (or more!) participating shops and get a discount on your shopping trip.

Here’s where to donate/shop:
Alexis Bittar, Entre Nous, Jane of Tarzana, Plastica , Polkadots and Moonbeams, and Show Pony will give you 10-20% off when you bring in any women’s gently used clothing items. (Discount varies by location, see store for details.)

Beckley Boutique and Bedhead Pajamas are running a “Denim Drive”, so grab your denim and come in for an instant 20% off. Beckley Boutique will be bringing in extra merchandise brought in from favorite vendors Citizens of Humanity, Closed Denim, and Nation LTD who enthusiastically wanted to get involved with the event.

If you have jewelry pieces you’re just not feeling anymore, bring it to Mom’s The Word for 20% off new merch. (One shopping trip per client.)

Knitters, crocheters, and other crafty people bring in your “stash” yarn in a sealed ziplock bag to Knit Culture Studio for 15% off select yarns. (Doesn’t have to be full skeins, but it MUST be in a sealed ziplock bag, and preferably neat and tangle-free.)

Shopaholic Sample Sales is offering 20% off one item when you bring in gently used cold-weather clothes. (Coats, jackets, gloves, long sleeve tees, etc.)

The Downtown Women’s Center is an exceptional organization that after decades of pioneering service has become a national standard for ending homelessness. MADE by DWC was started as a social enterprise that teaches marketable job skills and helps women discover talents through vocational opportunities.
