[CGWcostumers] UPDATE! Volunteer Outreach Opportunity!
- Sadly, this event has been cancelled, or at least the outreach part.I received an email from the organizer that LA Unified has told them that they are not able to keep the classroom open all day on Saturday. This means that in order to distribute the items for Prom Dress Day that they will have to do so every afternoon after school for a couple of hours. This makes it effectively impossible to accomplish the outreach as intended.They are still accepting donations. Contact me or the organizer, Katy, through their Facebook page.Thank you so much to all who were willing to donate their time and skill to this worthy cause!RebeccaOn Mar 21, 2013, at 6:02 PM, Hannah wrote:

I understand it's a Saturday so people could do shifts but that would mean more volunteers. The whole 5 hours would be great but any time that you can would help. I will be there early to set up.Thanks,Rebecca

CGW is looking for about six volunteers on Saturday, April 6th to assist with light alterations, steaming, and assisting teens in selecting a prom dress for the “I Have a Dream Foundation” prom dress day.
The event will be held at a middle school in Boyle Heights from mid-morning to late afternoon, exact time TBD. CGW will provide consumables such as thread, needles, etc. If you are able to bring your machine to assist in alterations, it would be much appreciated.
If you are unable to volunteer but would still like to contribute, you can also donate items for the drive such as dresses, shoes, or accessories. We are also looking for scraps of fabric, trims, ribbons, embellishments, and the like to assist in alterations.
Please contact Rebecca Howard as soon as possible if you are able to volunteer or donate!
