G4G Palm Springs + Mizell Center
October 11, 2022
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
G4G Palm Springs is partnering with Mizell Center to collect and sort donations for adults and create clothing care packages for students.
Celebrate National Coming Out Day with Us!
Clean out those closets and meet us at the Mizell Center to drop off and process your donations of new and gently used clothing for adults and children, small appliances, jewelry, housewares, children’s books, and anything else hiding in your closets that you’d like to donate to the Mizell Center’s resale shop. All proceeds from donated goods to Aunt Betty’s Resale Shop will support Mizell’s life-affirming programs and services.
Children’s clothing donations will go to students at Cabot Yerxa Elementary School who have limited access to clean, wearable clothing for school.
We will also have a card-making station set up to create cards for Mizell’s Meals on Wheels clients
Date: October 11, 2022
