Posted: Tuesday, November 28, 2017 – 3:02 PM
The Annual Clothing Giveaway — an event hosted by the National Council of Jewish Women | Los Angeles (NCJW|LA) — will take place from 8 a.m.-noon, Sunday, Dec. 3, rain or shine, in the parking lot of NCJW|LA Council House, 543 N. Fairfax Ave., L.A.
In keeping with its mission to improve the quality of life for women, children and families, NCJW|LA invites in-need and at-risk members of the community to select from thousands of pieces of clothing and children’s books. Attendees will also be able to receive information from local social service providers at the Community Resource Fair on Clinton Street just west of Fairfax.
NCJW|LA’s eight Council Thrift Shops provided more than 2,000 people with 75,000 pieces of clothing at last year’s Clothing Giveaway, with more than 250 volunteers.
“National Council of Jewish Women | Los Angeles is extremely proud and grateful to be able to continue to serve and provide for the community in-need,” said Helen Davidov, NCJW|LA board president.
In addition to providing the clothing for the Annual Clothing Giveaway, Council Thrift Shops fund NCJW|LA’s community programs that serve women children, and families. The programs include Council Talkline (877-655-3807), Community Mental Health and Supportive Services, and Youth Educational Programs and Services.
