Clean Out Your Closets For Charity



St. Paul’s Center, an emergency homeless shelter for mothers and children, located in Rensselaer, is accepting donations of gently- and never-used handbags, scarves and jewelry to be used in their July 25th event, “For the Love of Bags & Bling”.

“It is possible that the donation of a rarely-used designer bag could cover a child’s shelter, food and services for a week. Last year’s event raised enough money to cover the unreimbursed shelter expenses for five families of three – five moms and ten kids – for 40 days. That is significant,” explains Tracy Pitcher, the Center’s executive director.

“For the Love of Bags & Bling” is scheduled for Jul. 25 at the Zaloga American Legion Post on Everett Rd., 5:30-8:30pm. This event is a great girls’ night out and offers the opportunity to buy great items for between $1 and $75. Raffles and silent auctions include bags and accessories along with items donated by local businesses including movie tickets, spa treatments, and family activities. All proceeds benefit St Paul’s Center and the families who rely on them for shelter, services and support. To donated, contact 518.434.2910 or [email protected] or [email protected]. For further information, visit www.stpaulscenter.com or the Center’s Facebook page.
