Keller Williams Chooses F-to-F Giving Project for “Red Day”
“Had a great day stuffing t-shirts… This project was a great choice for us!” Carol Vigorito of Keller Williams Realty and her company’s team of realtors in Queens, New York made and donated 121 “Stuffed Shirts” at their annual “Red Day” giving event on May 14th.
The t-shirts, which were filled with basic hygiene items like shampoo, soap and toothpaste, were delivered to Queens Community House, where they’ll be given out to families struggling with poverty.
Thank You Green Eileen!
Here at Family-to-Family we’re packing up MORE beautiful clothing donated to us by the Eileen Fisher Recycling program through Green Eileen, the branch of Eileen Fisher dedicated to recycling Eileen Fisher clothes. So far we’ve passed along the donated clothes to women in need in our Montrose, Arkansas recipient community, to Henry Street Settlement House in NYC, to the YWCA in White Plains, NY and to Integrity House in Newark, N.J. Green Eileen has donated a total of 5,335 items of women’s clothing to Family-to-Family since mid-March!
A special thanks to the folks at Dannon who just donated 50 brand new, unopened electric mixers to Family-to-Family. We passed them on to women struggling to get back on their feet who are living at the YWCA in White Plains, New York and at WIN (Women in Need) in New York City.
