Clothing Drive for Translatinx Network
Wed, June 5, 2019 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm
An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until Sun, June 23, 2019
Your used clothes can be given new life as part of a gender-affirming clothing drive sponsored by the LGBTQ+ Community of St. Bart’s. Thanks to a recent partnership with Translatinx Network (TN), you can drop off items from June 2nd through the 23rd at St. Bart’s. New Yorkers of trans experience feel liberated by expressing their true selves, but often struggle with the cost of clothing which reflects their gender. This is especially true of clients served by TN, many of whom have fled persecution in their hometown or country of origin, and have arrived in NYC with little more than the clothes on their backs. Your donation of clean, gently used clothing of any gender expression, accessories, or shoes will be made available to clients at no cost. (Please no used socks or underwear, but yes to shoes, especially in larger feminine styles, as well as earrings, bracelets, or other accessories). There will be a drop-off box at St. Bart’s Central through Sunday June 23rd. Part of Pride Month at St. Bart’s.
