Woo Hoo! We had an amazing week!

The Excitement @ CityHeART

We’re overjoyed that people came out and swapped their socks off. The donations from the CityHeART Swap along with big news for the Walking Closet have us jumping for joy! We are thrilled to share some of that excitement with you.

The Swap Was A Whopping Success!

Thank you to everyone who took time out last Saturday to join us in Bixby Park with some clothing, toys, and produce. We were left with bags upon bags of adult and children’s clothing to donate to local organizations. Among the donated toys were baby dolls, mini monster trucks, and costume supplies. Not only tomatoes and other vegetables, but also several suculents were donated to the produce table. We were surprised by how much we had to give when it was all over, and that’s a great thing! We enjoyed talking to you as you dropped things off and perused, and we look forward to holding similar events in the future.

 

What’s Up With the Walking Closet? GREAT NEWS!

Recently, CityHeART had the honor of being selected by La Bomba Vintage Clothing for a HUGE clothing giveaway.

10,000 POUNDS OF CLOTHING!

We couldn’t believe it ourselves until we started packing everything up on Sunday night.

We wrapped up the week by delivering all the bags of clothing to Century Villages at Cabrillo (CVC), where we will sort through them and distribute to residents via a clothing closet.  The closet, which will have clothes for all ages and occasions, will be a helpful addition to our efforts at CVC. This project wouldn’t have been possible without the generous gift from La Bomba and all of the many volunteers who helped us pack and move Mt. Clothing Pile. We are extremely grateful for everything that’s happening and can’t wait to update you on what’s next.
