Have you visited Charity's Closet and Phil's Closet in the Savage Mill? That's only a short drive from Clarksville.Your purchase of new or gently used clothing and accessories will help those less fortunate become suitably attired for employment and give you a nice inexpensive change of wardrobe.
The resale boutiques benefit Success in Style. Now is a good time to visit to see all the spring fashions and take your chances on wonderful surprises. The shops are only closed Mondays.
Charity's Closet is sponsoring a free Cherybration Fashion Show on April 24 at 2 p.m. All they need are your fabulous prom, evening and wedding gowns plus models in all sizes. It'll be a fun event.
The Closets can always use adult volunteers. If you begin volunteering before April 30, you'll be eligible for a drawing to win a handbag. There are also monthly volunteer breakfasts. The next one is April 25.
While you're coming to check out the Closets you might want to bring some of your duds to donate. Phil's Closet especially needs new white shirts, men's underwear and dress socks.
