This sale will benefit the school's Parent Teacher Student Association to support events and activities at the school.
Ahead of the sale, the school is looking for donations of virtually any clothing or household items (no TVs or big furniture). They're being accepted now; for more information call Martha Potts at 925-682-1843, ext. 5306. Donations are tax deductible.
"What's Mine is Yours," a local 501 c (3) nonprofit started by students at Northgate High in Walnut Creek and Bentley School in Lafayette is collecting clean and lightly used clothes from their peers in order to redistribute them to teen girls in need throughout the county.
So far the two freshman girls who operate the program have collected more than 1,000 pieces of clothing.
Some of the clothes are distributed through another nonprofit called Students Rise Above, which helps dress teens for success in job interviews. Currently, What's Mine is Yours is focusing on a coat drive for the winter.
Clothes can be dropped off at the office of New Concept Staffing Inc. at 190 Wiget Lane, Suite 102, Walnut Creek, Monday through Friday from noon to 4 p.m. For more information, visit the website whatsmineisyours.us, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The charity does schedule pickups for 10 or more pieces of clothing. If teens girls donate 10 or more pieces of clothing to the charity, they can receive a "What's Mine is Yours" tank top.
