Red Velvet was voted one of DC’s top places to go for cupcakes, so we are delighted to be able to distribute their sweet treats!

YMSSS Gives Back!

WIO logoRecall the YMSSS Gives Back initiative that we began at the start of the New Year (see here: https://secondhandshoppingsoiree.com/2013/01/27/ymsss-gives-back-initiative)? Well, we are pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with Women Investing in Ourselves (WIO) to offer new and gently used clothing to women in need. Founded in 2011 by Kalyn Hall, WIO is a nonprofit organization that works to provide resources, growth opportunities and a strong support network for disadvantaged young women in the DC Metropolitan area. Through our workshop activities, the organization inspires and motivates participants to become strong and self-sustaining individuals working towards building better communities. For more information about WIO, please visit them online at http://www.wearewio.org/.

Are you a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide resources to women and could use some high quality new and gently used clothing? If so, please send an email to secondhandthrifting@gmail.com to be considered for the next YMSSS Gives Back Initiative.
