One of our recent projects at Perry Wellness Center has been a clothes closet. The organized rack of clothes on the second floor of our classroom building provides sweaters, shirts, and pants that have been donated by local supporters. Used clothes in good condition can be a real help to many of our peers who operate on a tight budget, particularly as the weather starts to cool.
Recently Jeff Williams, our creative director, visited the closet and “modeled” a pair of lightly used overalls that he selected for a peer. He was pleased to note that the clothes item was a bit too large for him!
“Some time ago, these overalls would have been fine for me,” Jeff said. “With my increased physical workouts, health drinks, and health awareness that I have learned through the center, I can tell peers who are a little larger than me about our pants.” Jeff wants to remind readers and PWC supporters that lovingly used clothes items will be accepted by the center, and staff will be happy to pick donations up.
