  1. “STYLIN…THE FASHION BOUTIQUE”
    In The aftermath of Disasters people throughout the U.S. search through their closets for clothing to donate, often without thinking that the apparel needs to be cleaned first. Most of the time these “goodwill offerings” end up in Black Garbage Bags for the sake of easy delivery to disaster sites and are added to the already high mound of clothes waiting for an already distraught recipient to try and extricate something suitable to wear. This is a humiliating experience for those in need and a sad end for well-intentioned clothing donations.

    “STYLIN” will turn these donations that most nonprofit organizations are loathe to accept because of the amount of work involved in preparing them for distribution into a very valuable donation. “New Condition” 53′ Trailers are needed to be transformed into the traveling “Fashion Boutiques” which will be outfitted with organized clothes racks lining both sides. Only clothes that have been freshly cleaned will be accepted. Carpet on the floor and a nice entry for accepting these donations will complete the transformation. When the trailers are full of clothes, the trailer will then travel to the disaster site and be reopened to allow those in need to search with dignity for suitable clothing.
